Durham is home to the National Humanities Center, one of the world's leading institutes for advanced study. This year their annual conference will highlight North Carolina's role as a bellwether for the nation, through the lens of expressive culture in food, music and storytelling. Durhamites will be featured across all three conference tracks. 

North Carolina: The New American Heartland is a multi-dimensional initiative—highlighted by a three-day gathering on September 27–29, 2017—enlisting scholars, artists, critics, journalists, educators, economic forecasters, policy experts, activists, community leaders, business owners, and others to critically consider North Carolina’s role as a bellwether for the nation.
