*** Virtual *** Florida Talks: At Home! Democracy in Florida: A Work in Progress
Introducing Florida Talks: At Home!
With so many of our cultural partners temporarily closed, let us bring the humanities directly to you! Tapping into the immense talent and knowledge of our Speakers Directory, Florida Humanities is excited to announce its new weekly Florida Talks: At Home series! Tune in with your computer or smart device as we connect you with some of our state’s preeminent historians, authors, storytellers, and scholars. We’ll be announcing a complete schedule soon!
Kicking off our series is Dr. Steve Noll, Master Lecturer and Historian at the University of Florida. Dr. Noll is also the Lead Scholar of our upcoming Smithsonian exhibit, Voices & Votes: Democracy in America, which was originally scheduled to open this April in Tallahassee. While COVID-19 has delayed the tour, it’s still a great time to learn about the strange history that Florida has with democracy and national elections. Join us on Wednesday, May 6th at 6:00 PM as Dr. Noll presents, Democracy in Florida: A Work in Progress!
If you have any questions about our Florida Talks: At Home series, contact Alex Buell at [email protected].
Date/time: May 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
