Thursday 3/7, 1 p.m.
Richard J. A. Talbert, William Rand Kenan, Jr. Professor of History
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. Carolina Public Humanities will explore these questions in our new extended-lecture, mid-week series on military history and topics in peace, war, and defense. For detailed descriptions, visit humanities.unc.edu.
Cost: $25 per lecture; $60 for all three
