We partner with local institutions and some of the greatest minds of our time. Grow with us and learn something new!
Dphi enriches Denver’s intellectual and cultural life through programs that reframe our perspectives, challenge our assumptions, and stimulate dialogue about human thought, history, science, art and culture.
Here's where you'll find recordings, summaries, and speaker details.
Film Screening and Discussion (w/ live piano accompaniment)
A Fool There Was (1915) was previously thought to be be the oldest surviving vampire film. Recently, MSU Denver's Jim Aubrey rediscovered the reel for an even earlier film, The Vampire (1913) in the archives of the George Eastman Museum. Join us for a one-of-a-kind screening on the original 35mm film, with live piano accompaniment from MSU Denver Music students. Both films will be shown, and Dr. Vincent Piturro will lead discussions after each.

Sponsored by MSU Denver Film and Media Studies and MSU Denver Music
Come for a night of discussion, wine, & cheese. We’ll be covering a wide range of topics, related to the theme ‘FAULT LINES.’
- Major technological and scientific breakthroughs
- New polarization dynamics at international level or within our own societies
- The shockwave of new forms of mobilization
- Denver's planning, its environmental sustainability and a place occupied by the practice of sport.
Listen to short presentations by scholars from across disciplines, including philosophy, economics, history and modern languages, and then choose whose table to join for dinner. Feel free to change tables and learn with each group, or take a deep dive into a single topic for the whole evening.
This event is free and open to the public so there is no RSVP required, but they do help us a lot with planning!
