Monthly Meeting – A History of Atheism in Canada

September 9, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Did you know that this country has a deep, rich history of non-belief and Humanistic thought, even right here in Manitoba? That history will be the subject of our first meeting in September.

HAAM presents Dr. Elliot Hanowski of the University of Manitoba, who will speak about the history of atheist and secular movements in Canada – their beliefs, actions, motivations and social context. Dr. Hanowski recently spoke in Morden on the same subject, which is what led HAAM to invite him to speak to our group. (You can read about that event in our June newsletter.)

Dr. Hanowski received his Ph.D in Canadian history from Queen’s University and is the author of several articles on the subject. He is also one of the founding directors of ISHASH (International Society for Historians of Atheism, Secularism, and Humanism).

Join us for what will be an entertaining and informative evening.

About our Monthly Meetings

Welcome! Our regular monthly meetings are always open to the public. Come early for dinner, drinks, or just to visit. Our social and (optional) dinner time begins at 5:30. Meeting is at 6:30 followed by the presentation at about 7:00 PM. Late-comers and drop-ins are welcome, so if you can’t make it on time or stay till the end, don’t worry. You can eat during the meeting if you’re late – the buffet is open till 8 PM.

If you are new and just checking us out, you are welcome to attend one or two events before becoming a member. After that, if you wish to continue to participate, we ask that you support the group by joining. Our annual dues are reasonable and include a limited-income option.
