PPE Salon Proposals: Spring 2021

PPE Salon Proposal Form: Spring 2021

We are excited to announce that PPE will again be offering PPE Salons for the spring semester! If you are interested in leading a PPE Salon this spring, please make your proposals by filling out our form below. Salon leaders receive a modest honorarium for hosting a meeting.

In thinking about what PPE Salon topic you might propose, keep in mind that your selection should be something that undergraduates will likely recognize as something they should understand better than they currently do.

The PPE Salon meets virtually (for now) for one evening (1.5 – 2 hours), to discuss a topic and paired readings. Participants should receive any reading materials beforehand (i.e., articles, scholarly papers, etc.), along with questions for discussion.

You may submit more than one proposal throughout the semester. Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis, as the salons work best with immediately relevant topics of discussion with contextually appropriate readings. Please indicate in the “Comments” field the level of familiarity you have with your topic, the selected readings you’ve chosen to ground the topic, why it is particularly suitable for a PPE Salon, and any other relevant information.

Information about the PPE Salon we held in the fall is available HERE.

Please reach out to us (ppeprogram@unc.edu) if you have any questions!
