Featuring Jes Boon (UNC Religious Studies), Ben Murphy (UNC English and Comparative Literature), Morgan Pitelka (UNC History and Asian Studies), Joanna Sierks Smith (Carolina Public Humanities), Dr. Afroz Taj (UNC Department of Asian Studies). Moderated by Max Owre (Carolina Public Humanities).

One way to get through difficult times like these is by connecting to a community of people to talk, learn, and laugh. With this in mind, CPH invites you to grab a beverage of your choice and join us for a enjoy a conversation with various members of the UNC community each week for our Virtual Humanities Happy Hour. To comply with safe social distancing practices, these Virtual Humanities Happy Hours will all take place over Zoom. These hour long conversations will feature short presentations by various UNC faculty, followed by a Q&A session with the audience. To make the conversation easier to facilitate, we will only be accepting questions via Zoom’s chat feature.

Register here:

All Virtual Humanities Happy Hours will be recorded and posted to CPH’s YouTube page following the event.
