September 05th, 2015 9:30 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Topic: How can we impact the inequities in our economic system?

Surely one of the most important topics of our time, especially here in the U.S. compared to the economic disparities in other countries.

Find some articles or links to help with the discussion if you like and feel free to post related articles in the comments section on our Meetup page at HSGP Meetup.. If you are interested, a group of us like to go out to lunch afterward. We will wrap up the meeting around noon so you just might be hungry by then.

Hosted by Richard Dewey the first Saturday of each month.

FILM - PEDRO E. GUERRERO: A PHOTOGRAPHER'S­ JOURNEY

Event: Humanities Project Outing: Film Screening

September 09th, 2015 7:00 pm - Wednesday


Location: Piper Repertory Theater, Mesa Arts Center, One East Main Street, Mesa

FILM SCREENING PREVIEW OF PEDRO E. GUERRERO: A PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNEY
A special co-presentation of VOCES and American Masters

Film Synopsis
Discover the remarkable life and work of Pedro E. Guerrero (September 5, 1917-September 13, 2012), a Mexican American, born and raised in segregated Mesa, Arizona, who had an extraordinary international photography career. Using an exclusive interview with Guerrero along with his stunning images, the program explores his collaborations with three of the most iconic American artists of the 20th century: architect Frank Lloyd Wright and sculptors Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson. Using his outsider’s eye to produce insightful portraits of important modernist architecture, Guerrero became one of the most sought-after photographers of the “Mad Men” era, yet his poignant story is largely unknown. This film is a special co-presentation of VOCES and American Masters.

Reception and preview of the exhibition Yonder Peasant…The Photography of Pedro E. Guerrero immediately following screening.

TICKETS ARE FREE AND LIMITED
To reserve your ticket contact Box Office at 480-644-6500.

Meet Jennifer near entrance to Piper Repertory Theater by about 6:50. I don't know if the seats are assigned, so I am not sure if we can sit together or not, but we can at least say hello!

The American Masters and Voces documentary film Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey about Guerrero’s life airs on Arizona PBS on Friday, Sept 18 at 8pm. (Check your local listing.)

HP Afternoon Outing: Religious Violence in The Age of Enlightenment, Talk at ASU

Event: Humanities Project Outing: Talk

September 10th, 2015 3:00 pm - Thursday


Location: ASU West Hall Room 135 Tenth St. and Forrest Mall, Tempe

Religious Violence in the Age of EnlightenmentBenjamin Kaplan

As religious violence erupts around the world, we often question how people can coexist in peace when their basic religious identities seem irreconcilable. Benjamin J. Kaplan, a historian and professor of Dutch history at University College London, looks for answers in the religious history of early modern Europe, when issues of religious toleration were no less pressing than today.

The standard histories of religious conflict in Europe claim that by the eighteenth century, under the influence of Enlightenment thinkers, Europeans had embraced reason and toleration and turned their backs on religious fervor. In recent years, this textbook version of western history has increasingly been challenged. In this lecture, Benjamin Kaplan will further challenge this view by offering a case study of bitter religious conflict between Protestants and Catholics that persisted far into the eighteenth century.

Much of Kaplan’s research has focused on religious toleration and religious conflict in European history. He is the author of Divided by Faith: Religious Conflict and the Practice of Toleration in Early Modern Europe, and Cunegonde's Kidnapping: A Story of Religious Conflict in the Age of Enlightenment. Kaplan's lecture is part of the center’s Maxine and Jonathan Marshall Speaker Series on Religion and Conflict, which honors the lifelong commitment of Maxine and Jonathan Marshall to promoting the arts, education, civil liberties, and world peace.

A Free Humanities Project Event

Meet Mike Franklin at the entrance.

Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, will give a talk on his new book, Creating Change Through Humanism, just published by Humanist Press.

October 24th, 2015 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Join us to discuss "Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker" by Jennifer Chiaverini.

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini’s compelling historical novel unveils the private lives of Abraham and Mary Lincoln through the perspective of the First Lady’s most trusted confidante and friend, her dressmaker, Elizabeth Keckley.

In a life that spanned nearly a century and witnessed some of the most momentous events in American history, Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley was born a slave. A gifted seamstress, she earned her freedom by the skill of her needle, and won the friendship of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln by her devotion. A sweeping historical novel, Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker illuminates the extraordinary relationship the two women shared, beginning in the hallowed halls of the White House during the trials of the Civil War and enduring almost, but not quite, to the end of Mrs. Lincoln’s days.

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

Event: Book Club

November 28th, 2015 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa

Join us to discuss The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt.

from Amazon
As America descends deeper into polarization and paralysis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has done the seemingly impossible—challenged conventional thinking about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to everyone on the political spectrum. Drawing on his twenty five years of groundbreaking research on moral psychology, he shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from gut feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different intuitions about right and wrong, and he shows why each side is actually right about many of its central concerns. In this subtle yet accessible book, Haidt gives you the key to understanding the miracle of human cooperation, as well as the curse of our eternal divisions and conflicts.

Event: Book Club

December 26th, 2015 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa

Join us to discuss The Lady in Gold:The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt's Masterpiece, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Anne-Marie O’Connor

from Amazon
O'Connor  brilliantly regales us with the galvanizing story of Gustav Klimt’s 1907 masterpiece—the breathtaking portrait of a Viennese Jewish socialite, Adele Bloch-Bauer. The celebrated painting, stolen by Nazis during World War II, subsequently became the subject of a decade-long dispute between her heirs and the Austrian government.

When the U.S. Supreme Court became involved in the case, its decision had profound ramifications in the art world. Expertly researched, masterfully told, The Lady in Gold is at once a stunning depiction of fin-de siècle Vienna, a riveting tale of Nazi war crimes, and a fascinating glimpse into the high-stakes workings of the contemporary art world.
