Carolina Humanities in Action: Erasures: The Impact of Digitization on Historical Newspapers

featuring Lyneise Williams, Associate Professor of Art History 

Tuesday 3/24, 4:30 pm

All CPH programs and public activities until May 1 are cancelled, effective immediately. This cancellation adheres to the recently announced policies of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, which include the suspension of all large-group public activities and the transition to on-line instruction for UNC students. Like everyone who is dealing with this extraordinary pandemic, we cannot possibly predict how the situation will evolve in the coming weeks, and further changes may be required.

We are thus suspending all CPH programs until our Beethoven @250 Adventures in Ideas Weekend Seminar on May 2. We hope that the Covid-19 situation will have stabilized by then; and we hope to resume normal operations in May for our already-planned summer program.

This cancellation includes all weekend seminars, lecture series, book groups, cinema schools, language lunches, humanities happy hours, Carolina K-12 workshops, Community College programs, and special events.

If you have signed up for forthcoming seminars or other programs, you will receive an email about the cancellation of events for which you have already registered. You will be able to choose to have your tuition refunded or credited to future CPH programs. If you have questions about these adjustments, please call CPH at 919-962-1544 or write us at human@unc.edu.

We hope to reschedule many of our cancelled spring events in the fall semester, giving priority to people who have already registered for these programs.

In the modern world we cannot avoid technology, but we can try to understand its effects on our society and culture. Join us for this spring’s interdisciplinary series of talks that explore the many ways technology is changing our lives, from the music we listen to, to the cars we drive, to the people we vote for, and much more.

All programs are held from 4:30-6:00 pm at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill. Advance registrants can take advantage of our special FLYLEAF SEASON PASS and receive a discount on the purchase of all nine lectures.
