“North Carolina: Then & Now,” the second in the Carolina Public Humanities: Humanities on the Road series, will be at Sandhills Community College on Wednesday, September 27 from 10:30 am until 3 pm.
Rachel Seidman and Rebecca Tippet, both from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will be the presenters.
Seidman is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of History, and Associate Director of the Southern Oral History Program with research focused on oral history and the history of U.S. women’s activism. She is particularly interested in connecting history of current public debates through civic engagement and community-based research.
Tippet is the founding director of Carolina Demography at the Carolina Population Center. With more than a decade of experience analyzing demographic and economic data, she has spent the last seven years translating research into usable information and knowledge to inform decision-making, evaluation, and policy.
Traditionally, the seminars, formerly entitled The Program in the Humanities and Human Values, have been held on the UNC campus. In a desire to expand locations outside of the Chapel Hill area, Sandhills Community College was chosen as the regional home for the Carolina Public Humanities: Humanities on the Road. Since its inception in 1979, the program has sponsored more than 900 seminars, workshops, and conferences on a range of moral, social, and cultural issues.
The cost is $25 and includes lunch. To register by phone, please contact the Sandhills Community College Office of Continuing Education at 910-695-3980, or register in person at the college in the Continuing Education offices in Van Dusen Hall. Please specify course #3023.
