The Denver Project for Humanistic Inquiry, or D-phi, aims to enrich Denver’s intellectual and cultural life through programs designed to reframe our perspectives, challenge our assumptions, and stimulate dialogue about human thought, history, science, art and culture. D-phi organizes roundtable discussions, art exhibits, film screenings, theatrical performances, and lectures centered on major themes, issues or questions of abiding human concern. We host both local and international experts, artists, and some of the 'greatest minds of our time.' 

The Denver Project for Humanistic Inquiry offers free tickets to students - email dphi@msudenver.edu to RSVP

Lady Eve: Exploring Cavell on Film

 

Stanley Cavell (1926-2018) was one of the most celebrated American philosophers of the past century.  Outside of the academy, he was perhaps best know for his insightful interpretation of Hollywood classics, which had profound impact upon our understanding of the significance of film.  This screening of one of his favorite screwball comedies will be followed by a discussion with his four most accomplished students and friends. 

Panelists:

Nancy Bauer, Dean of Liberal Arts and Professor of Philosophy, Tufts University

Richard Eldridge, Professor of Philosophy, Swarthmore College

Garrett Stewart, Professor of English, University of Iowa

Michael Fischer, Provost and Professor of English, Trinity University

The “Peas and Carrots” series is light-hearted talk show-style event focusing on themes related to current Buntport productions, featuring music and interviews with D-phi scholars. The Rembrandt Room is a dark comedy featuring one woman standing next to one masterpiece for who knows how long. Buntport’s first ever one-person show, this play is a mash-up of historical fact, Greek myth, and Buntport fiction.
