Spring 2014 Hutchins Lectures

Named for James A. Hutchins Jr. (1917–2002), a distinguished Carolina alumnus who spent most of his life fighting world hunger, the Hutchins Lecture Series has been generously funded by the Hutchins Family Foundation since the 2010–11 season. Speakers are selected with attention to their ability to bring scholarly material to mixed public and academic audiences. Consistent with the Chancellor’s emphasis on outreach and engagement, the Hutchins Lectures bring faculty and students into conversation with community members to discuss issues of common topical interest.

This spring, we look forward to hosting Amrita Chakrabarti Myers on “Making a Way out of No Way: Black Women in the Old South,” Jessica Harris on “African American Foodways, North and South,” and Murphy Hicks Henry on “Steel-String Magnolias: Women in Bluegrass.”
