Lunch With Friends and Strangers: Conversations With UNC Faculty
Click in with Carolina Public Humanities’ Max Owre for Virtual Lunch With Friends and Strangers: Conversations With Faculty. Don’t miss this series of one-on-one talks with Tar Heels as they discuss leading figures in history — some likely strangers, some more familiar to you — and discover new things about impressive people. Here are our guests for Fall 2020:
- September 25 – Lloyd Kramer on Marquis de Lafayette
- October 9 – Kathy Williams on Ida B Wells
- October 23 – Don Raleigh on Leonid Brezhnev
- October 30 – Matt Andrews on Billie Jean King
- November 6 – TBD
- November 13 – Karin Pfennig on Joseph Leidy
Each lunch starts at 12:00 noon and runs approximately 30 minutes. Conversations will be accessed via a Zoom webinar (not a Zoom meeting).
The lunches will be recorded and available via the Carolina Public Humanities YouTube page.
Details for accessing the webinar will be sent by the morning of the lunch. Register for one or all with the GAA: https://alumni.unc.edu/things-to-do/lifelong-learning/virtual-lunch-with-faculty/
