Humanities in Action Tuesdays: The Social Scientist as “Expert Witness” in Cases of Religious Freedom

The Social Scientist as “Expert Witness” in Cases of Religious Freedom

Charles Price, Associate Professor of Anthropology

Tuesday 9/18, 4:30 p.m.

Why does college cost so much? What happens when one’s religion isn’t recognized by the government? Why are college sports often engines for controversy? These are just a few of the thorny questions we will tackle at our Humanities in Actions series this fall. Join us for nine lectures on current issues that call for ongoing dialogues and humanistic perspectives. Embodying the university’s mission to extend the resources of the University to all citizens and community members of North Carolina, Carolina Public Humanities offers engaging and innovative public seminars and lectures on a variety of topics and themes throughout the year. Our programs draw upon the humanities to nurture a deeper understanding of history and culture, enrich the life of the mind, and contribute to the development of a more humane world.

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.
