Carolina Public Humanities is back with more virtual programming for Spring 2021!

Our Adventures in Ideas seminars will continue to be held online this spring, where you can enjoy them from the comfort and safety of your own home! 

We have been working hard to create a virtual community, combining the scholars and content you love with the perks of online programming:

  • With your registration fee, you can attend the seminar in real time (with live Q&A) or you can watch the recording at your leisure for up to 2 weeks after it is posted – or both!
  • Encourage your local and out-of-town friends and family to register as well so that you can share the experience.

Some seminars will take place all in one day, and some seminars will be divided over two days to allow greater flexibility and safety for our scholars.  For a more detailed schedule and description of each seminar, simply click on the titles below.

The registration fee for each seminar is $50, or you can purchase a season pass to all five fall seminars for only $175 ($150 for GAA members).

Carolina Public Humanities offers two types of weekend seminars: Adventures in Ideas and Dialogues.

Adventures in Ideas is our flagship program. We have hosted over 850 seminars since 1979, educating and entertaining over 55,000 participants. These sessions feature in-depth explorations of topics drawing on the latest scholarship and the most dynamic faculty from UNC and other area institutions. Built around a single topic, theme, approach, or sometimes purposely eclectic, these seminars help us appreciate the depth and interwoven nature of knowledge.

Dialogues are half-day programs that put two scholars in conversation with each other on a related topic.
