Carolina Public Humanities and the Institute for the Arts and Humanities (IAH) are teaming up to bring you Humanities Hour at BackBar. Humanities Hour will feature the scholars who were or are UNC-CH Institute for the Arts and Humanities Faculty Fellows.

All Humanities Hours feature a short scholarly presentation followed by a discussion with the audience. Humanities Hours are free and open to the public and run from 6-7pm at Top of the Hill’s Back Bar. Free snacks are provided courtesy of Carolina Public Humanities and the IAH, but get there early because it gets gobbled up fast!
