2319 - Carolina for Northerners: An Introduction to the Old North State
Recent decades have seen thousands of new residents moving into North Carolina, many from northern states, and now this state's population is among the top ten in the country. Drawn by employment, universities, warmer weather, and the promise of progressive attitudes, these newcomers have themselves altered the nature of the state. However, many still lack a deeper understanding of the history of a state once described as a "Vale of Humility between two Mountains of Conceit" (AKA colonial Virginia and South Carolina). This course takes a look at how North Carolina's unique geography and history, from the colonial period to the current day, have shaped its society, politics, and culture. Lecture (plus questions). Facilitated Discussion.
