Community Events

  1. Humanities Kansas Talk Series-The Good Earth

    September 17, 2020, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

    Join us for a virtual book discussion of "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck over Zoom! Much of human history viewed nature as an enemy to be tamed, conquered, or endured. Today, faced with accelerated loss of the natural world, increasing numbers of people have begun to recognize the natural world’s value, and worry about how best to keep its ways – and the livelihoods and cultures that have specifically adapted to exploit a certain kind of environment – from being lost. The characters in this series ask themselves what the place of nature can or should be when the world is becoming increasingly complex and “unnatural.” The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck (1931). Wang Lung, a poor peasant who “makes good” by caring about and acquiring land, has unfailing help from his wife, but values her only for her labor and sons she supplies. Sons, brought up in an industrializing China, stray from their father’s commitment to the land and to older values.
