Sandhills to Host UNC Humanities Seminars


When Aesop noted that, “Union gives strength,” he might well have been referring to Sandhills Community College in its collaboration with UNC-Chapel Hill.

The first in a series of UNC seminars through The Program in the Humanities and Human Values will be held at Sandhills Community College on Friday, September 16. “Perspectives on World War II: Daily Life as Experienced by the War’s Victims” will be presented by Karen Auerbach and Eric Muller.

The seminar will run from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The cost is $25.00 which includes a lunch.

Auerbach is an Assistant Professor and Stuart E. Eizenstat Fellow in the Department of History at UNC with research focused on the social history of Polish Jews in the 19th and 20th centuries. She will present “Jewish Responses to Persecution, 1933-1945.”  

Muller is the Dan K. Moore Distinguished Professor of Law in Jurisprudence and Ethics and has written extensively regarding Japanese-American internment. He will present “Colors of Confinement: Rare Kodachrome Photographs of Japanese American Imprisonment in World War II,”

Traditionally, these seminars have been held on the UNC campus. In a desire to expand locations outside of the Chapel Hill area, Sandhills was chosen as the regional home for The Program in the Humanities and Human Values. Since its inception in 1979, the program has sponsored over 900 seminars, workshops and conferences on a wide range of moral, social and cultural issues.

The Sandhills Community College English and Humanities Department and Global Scholars Program will serve as host for the seminars. For further information on this program, please go to
