In the wake of hate

D-phi’s “Humanities in Charlottesville after ‘Charlottesville’” to examine community recovery and student leadership.

April 2, 2018

Poster communicating information about Humanities in Charlottesville after Victor Luftig, professor and director of the Center for the Liberal Arts at the University of Virginia, was gearing up to teach a Fall 2017 class called “Global Resistance and Student Activism.”

That’s when the horrific events of this past August descended upon the college town.

As Metropolitan State University of Denver reaffirms our commitment to campus safety, join the Denver Project for Humanistic Inquiry on April 5 at 2 p.m. in SSB 400 for “Humanities in Charlottesville after ‘Charlottesville,’” where Luftig will discuss the role of humanities in assisting a community’s recovery. He’ll detail his recent collaboration with the Southern Poverty Law Center and how students have become leaders in the wake of hatred.

The event is free and open to the community.
