Lunch & Learn:  “The South for New (and Long-standing) Southerners” 

Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017, 12pm in Gorelick Hall 

The South often seems like a foreign country to newcomers from other parts of the United States. For anyone who has ever wondered why the style of conducting business in the South is different or why some Southerners are still fighting the Civil War, this facilitated discussion promises to be enlightening.  Our Lunch & Learn will also explore the Jewish experience in the South in comparison to Jewish life in the North.

Our guest speaker for the Lunch & Learn is Dr. David Goldfield, who will facilitate our discussion.  Dr. Goldfield is a professor at UNC Charlotte where he is distinguished as the Robert Lee Bailey Professor of History.  Dr. Goldfield has written sixteen books on various aspects of South and American history, including the award winning Still Fighting the Civil War.  Born in Memphis, growing up in Brooklyn, and educated in Maryland, Dr. Goldfield brings his own personal and professional insights of the North and South to our discussion.

The program is free and open to all, however, registration is required.  Click here to register You will have the option to pre-order a box lunch ($12). You may also bring a dairy or vegetarian lunch. For more information please contact Debby Block, or 704 944-6780.
