To celebrate the Summer 2015 issue release from Southern Cultures, we’re having a beach picnic–right here in Chapel Hill! The new issue features the Ali-Quarry fight in Atlanta, contested stereotypes of southern motherhood, Civil War novels by Vietnam vets, lesbian print culture in North Carolina, and the UNC Student Strike of 1970–plus Bulgarian Faulkner, gorilla stories, thwarted lynchings, and a circus cemetery in “Little Dixie.” We’ll also unveil the new Southern Cultures app from UNC Press, which allows readers to access our award-winning content on the go.
Join us at the Love House for a summer picnic, comments by John Sherer, and fantastic beach music by The Legacy Motown Revue! This event is free and open to the public.
Join us at the Love House for the opening act of our 2015-16 Music on the Porch series! UNC’s very own Harmonyx & Achordants both seek to promote unity and diversity on campus and beyond through their music. This evening of a capella awesomeness, which is included as part of the University’s “Week of Welcome,” is free and open to the public. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for a while!
Join us at the Love House for one of the hottest jazz acts in the Triangle. The quartet includes bandleader Eric Przedpelski on saxophone, David Klingman on piano, Philip Norris on bass, and Atticus Reynolds on drums. Fresh off a summer concert series in New Jersey, the quartet will celebrate the release of their debut album, Wild Goose Chase.
This event is free and open to the public. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for a while!
The Southern Oral History Program‘s current interns–Liz Kennedy, Holly Plouff, Bryan Smith, and Samantha Gregg– have been hard at work this semester! Their project mapped the history of desegregation in North Carolina for high school teachers and created a women’s history walking tour of UNC, all through the medium of oral history. Please join us at the Center to enjoy their creative final project--a performance based on interviews with women about women’s activism at UNC and its relationship to the broader feminist movement. We know you’ll be impressed with their research and their creative use of performance as a method of disseminating their findings to the community.
