UNC Charlotte’s College of Liberal Arts & Sciences’ Personally Speaking series offers the community a chance to meet UNC Charlotte researchers/scholars and learn about their work. They will lead conversations about their books and how they came to write them.
These are free events.
In the 2021-2022 Personally Speaking published experts series, four College of Liberal Arts & Sciences researchers will engage audiences in conversations about alt-right gangs, the construction of language in the Marshall Islands, racial identity in Argentina, and geology’s impact in the Civil War.
The 2021-2022 season will feature an in-person event offered at the same time as a virtual offering, assuming that COVID-19 restrictions will allow the face-to-face event. The presentations will be recorded and available on the College’s YouTube channel.
Follow each link to learn more and to register. Registration is required. Start time is 7 p.m. Please check back soon for locations (the first one is virtual only.)
