NEW TEMPLATE

The humanities have always provided a forum and a language for continuing dialog, and a model for imaginative empathy. In an age of specialization, there is a more and more urgent need to discover how the parts relate to a sense of the whole. Humanities Washington takes that mandate seriously.

Think & Drink

Hosted Conversation Series Takes the Humanities Out for a Nightcap

 

null

 

Humanities Washington’s Think & Drink events are hosted conversations at pubs and tasting rooms on provocative topics and new ideas. Past events tackled topics from Prohibition to consumerism, and sparked lively conversation about morality, religion, history, and politics. Events are held throughout the year in Seattle, Tacoma, Yakima, and Spokane. No tickets or registration is required to attend.

Upcoming events:


  • July 12 in Seattle

"American Rage: Division and Anger in US Politics"

We may be in for a rough summer.

Fights are erupting at rallies, debates often collapse into yelling, and many members of a major political party are refusing to endorse their nominee.

How did we get here? Has U.S. politics ever been more divided and aggressive? Will it get better or worse? And is our increasingly media-saturated environment helping or hurting our divisions and public discourse?

Join WSU professors Cornell Clayton, co-editor of Civility and Democracy in America; and Travis Ridout, co-author of The Persuasive Power of Campaign Advertising, for an exploration of our polarized times. Moderated by KUOW's Ross Reynolds.

When: 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Where: Naked City Brewery and Taphouse, 8564 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103

Presented in collaboration with ACT Theatre's production of Daisy. Think and Drink attendees will receive a discount on tickets.
