Tuesday 4/16, 4:30 p.m.
Featuring Miguel La Serna, Associate Professor of History
Join us this spring as we learn about the challenges of living in the rapidly changing world of the late 20th and early 21st century with our historically informed series, “The World since 1945.” Some of our speakers will address people coping with the challenges of “modernity,” from Germans reevaluating their twentieth-century experiences to Chinese citizens living in deteriorating natural worlds. Others will question dominant narratives around US “enemies” such as Russia’s Vladimir Putin or so-called “Islamic Terrorists.” All the talks will foster dialogue and humanistic reflection on current events and the recent past to help us make sense of our ever-connected but ever-fractured world.
All programs are held from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. 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 ten lectures.
