To expand access to IAAR’s talks and lectures, Facebook Live now joins our options along with the popular #IAARchats. IAAR hosted two Twitter social media discussions in September and October. The first event was a dynamic and rich online event featuring UNC faculty in art history, law and sociology who discussed bringing the topics surrounding Confederate monuments, and the events in Charlottesville, into the classroom. The second Twitter discussion featured David Cunningham, Professor of Sociology at Washington University. His talk, “Anti-Black Violence and White Nationalism”, focused on the historical and current manifestations of anti-Black sentiments and violence. And, IAAR expanded to Facebook Live for our Graduate Student Summer Research Grant (GSSRG) Brown Bag talk series. GSSRG 2017 recipient and UNC Department of History graduate student Caroline Newhall’s talk was featured in this FB live recording. If you missed the events on Twitter or Facebook, you can access the discussions here:
