About the Abbey Speaker Series

About the Abbey Speaker Series

THE ABBEY SPEAKER SERIES is the signature speaker series for the Program for Public Discourse in the College of Arts & Sciences at UNC-Chapel Hill. Four times each year, it brings noteworthy scholars to campus — as individuals, in pairs or on panels — to foster productive dialogue on timely issues across a range of perspectives. These events are free and open to the public.

The Abbey Speaker Series was established in 2020 with a generous gift from Nancy, ’74, and Doug Abbey.

All Abbey Speaker Series events for the 2021-2022 academic year will be related to our current theme: Democracy and Public Discourse.

Recordings of all previous Abbey Speaker Series events are available on PPD’s YouTube channel.
