American Military Operations Since the Cold War

Wednesday, March 18, 2:00 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

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.

While we wish for a world at peace, war—to-date at least—seems to be an enduring part of the human condition. With more than 50 conflicts currently being fought around the world, we should try to understand the forces that cause them, how they are waged, and how we can end and prevent wars. Once again, Carolina Public Humanities returns to Flyleaf Books to explore these questions in this mid-week series on military history and topics in peace, war, and defense.
