Wed 2/22  5:30pm- 7pm  *special evening presentation UNC Humanities in Action at Flyleaf: The Landscape of Immigration Policy in North Carolina Presented by: Hannah Gill, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Assistant Director, Institute for the Study of the Americas and Director, The Latino Migration Project Over recent decades, the Southeast has become a new frontier for Latin American migration to and within the United States, and North Carolina has had one of the fastest growing Latino populations in the nation. Hannah Gill will offer a better understanding of our new Latino neighbors, their motivations for moving to North Carolina, and the larger historical and social forces behind demographic shifts. Register online at http://humanities.unc.edu/programs/humanities-in-action/ or call (919) 962-1544. The Humanities in Action program is UNC Humanities’ homage to the tradition of civic humanism. Renaissance civic humanists believed that knowledge could forge a moral community. Humanities in Action events honor this tradition by encouraging our audience to apply what they learn to their civic life. Come engage with contemporary and potentially controversial topics in a welcoming environment. These sessions are offered in collaboration with the General Alumni Association. All Humanities in Action events take place at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill. Most are from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. with the exception of our presentations on February 22 and March 28, which will run from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. There are no preparatory readings for Humanities in Action events. Program Tuition: Register ahead of time and pay $18.00 per program or pay only $8 if you are a member of the UNC General Alumni Association (GAA). To check your membership status or to join the GAA, please visit alumni.unc.edu or call 800.962.0742. Tuition is $20.00 for everyone paying at the door.
