Unsung Heroes Book Collection
Over the course of Humanities Week 2022, the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies is celebrating unsung heroes: extraordinary, yet overlooked people whose actions created changes within their communities and around the world. SHPRS staff, faculty and graduate students selected works that tell the stories of these people and groups whose hard work and noteworthy achievements made a lasting historical impact. This collection aims to acknowledge those who have often been left out of the widely known narratives of their times. SHPRS extends its great appreciation to the Hayden Library collections staff for making this collection a reality.
This Unsung Heroes collection is part of The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ Humanities week, a weeklong celebration of the human adventure across time, history, culture, and place. Discover how studying the humanities can lead to a fulfilling life and a more just world by picking up one of the books in the collection, or by attending one of the many events during the week.

You can view the collection in the concourse lobby of Hayden Library on the Tempe campus.
