There will be more information about the 2012 “Second Mondays” lecture series in the next week or so, but I wanted to give you a heads-up on the next lecture so that those of you who want to attend can plan. As always, the lecture will take place the second Monday of each calendar quarter, which means that our next talk is scheduled for February 20th*. Like (almost) all of our lectures, it will be held in the auditorium of the State Archives and Library building from 10:30-11:30 a.m. The topic for February is “Changing Tides: The Burnside Expedition” and it will be given by Chris Meekins, who frequently writes posts on this blog as part of our First Wednesdays history/digitization project.
Other lectures scheduled for 2012:
- May 14: “Sacred Bodies: Caring for the Dead During and After the War” – Bill Brown, Debbi Blake, Chris Meekins, N.C. State Archives
- August 13: “Bringing in the Dead: The North Carolina Civil War Atlas and Death Study” – Josh Howard, Office of Archives and History, Research Branch
- November 19: “Confederate Conscription Laws: A Primer” – Bill Brown, N.C. State Archives
Keep an eye on this space; I’ll add a link to the PDF flyer for the 2012 Second Mondays lectures soon. Hope to see you all in February.
Addendum (2/06/2012): The PDF poster for the lecture series is now available online.
*Update (2/07/2012): The date of this lecture has been changed from February 13, 2012 to February 20, 2012 due to unforeseen circumstances; we apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause those planning to attend.
