REGISTER BELOWHumanities Institute heads green,purple2-24

Have you ever wondered how the humanities address matters of urgent concern? This follow-up to last year’s Teach-Ins on Race and Human Community focuses on sustained teaching and learning in the humanities. Come to an evening of informal, disciplinary panel discussions of humanities courses that address race, racial formation, racialization, the encounter and interaction of varied racial and ethnic groups, and/or related topics in a range of historical and cultural contexts. Panels will be convened from 7:00-7:25 p.m., and again from 7:35-8:00 p.m., to enable students to attend up to two different sessions.

Before the HI event, please also encourage students to attend the 2016 Anna Julia Cooper Lecture delivered by Dr. Barbara Ransby, “From Black Power To Black Lives Matter: Mapping The Terrain Of The Black Freedom Movement.” The lecture begins at 5:30pm in the Porter Byrum Welcome Center.
