Humanities Institute Salons 2011-2012
The fine art of conversation with DU’s esteemed faculty from Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
The practice of “Salon-going” dates back to the 17th century when many of
the intellectual leaders of the day congregated in private homes to discuss
the latest thinking and artistic developments. These early Salons were also
said to be breeding grounds for social movements and revolutions because
they attracted political activists promoting social agitation and reform.
Today’s Humanities Institute Salons are just as stimulating, albeit less explosive.
About 20 people meet in a private home with an esteemed DU faculty member
to learn and exchange ideas. Lively discussion fills the air, time flies and you’ll
leave feeling energized, enriched and connected in a truly human way. All
Salon events are hosted at private residences. The host’s address is shared
upon registration. Persons with disabilities should call 303-871-2425.
