William R. Kenan, Jr., Distinguished Professor Carl Ernst was the Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Scholar for Arts@TheCore from 2016–2017. Professor Ernst led the Arts@TheCore initiative at Carolina Performing Arts and worked to encourage faculty, students, and the greater Carolina community to connect the performing arts with the core of university life.
Chaired by the Mellon Distinguished Scholar, the Faculty Advisory Committee is a multidisciplinary cohort of engaged faculty who meet to develop a long-term strategy for connecting Carolina Performing Arts with academic disciplines.
The seminar series will explore the curatorial process and how research and teaching might be amplified throughout the season’s offerings. Funds will be made available to the seminar to help promote interdisciplinary dialogues and for invited guest scholars and performers to participate in seminar discussions.
