 The Rothko Chapel is preparing to host an event exploring the dynamic intersection of theology and science – and diving into one woman’s concept of the divine, the universe and Christianity. 


At 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15, the Chapel is hosting a conversation with Franciscan nun Ilia Delio – moderated by Bill Kerley, a therapist and spiritual teacher. A public reception on the plaza will follow. 


The “pay what you can” event has a suggested value of $15. The Chapel is located at 3900 Yupon St. 


Ilia Delio, a Franciscan Sister out of Washington, DC, is a theologian focused on the overlap of science and religion. Her interests include evolution, physics and neuroscience – as they pertain to theology. 


Delio currently holds the Josephine C. Connelly Endowed Chair in Theology at Villanova University and has authored 17 books, including “Care for Creation” (co-written with Keith Warner and Pamela Woods), which won two Catholic Press Book Awards in 2009, first place for social concerns and second place in spirituality. 


Her book “The Emergent Christ” won a third place Catholic Press Book Award in 2011. Her recent work, “The Unbearable Wholeness of Being: God, Evolution and the Power of Love,” received the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award and a third place Catholic Press Association Award.


Bill Kerley is a psychological and spiritual teacher, who uses Jungian insights to help achieve personal and relational growth. In addition to his private practice as a counselor and spiritual director, he served as an instructor at Baylor College of Medicine, teaching  “at risk” heart patients the beliefs and behaviors necessary to enhance and prolong their lives. 


Kerley is past president of both the Houston Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and the National Speakers Association, Houston Chapter. A great deal of his energy goes into writing and giving talks designed to contribute to individual psychological and spiritual growth at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, where he has served on the staff for numerous years.


The conversation is part of the Chapel’s continuing series, “Concept of the Divine,” which provides a platform for speakers to explain how their personal concept of God has changed over time and shaped their lives, their service to the community and their understanding of their own identity.


“The Rothko Chapel is an organization committed to interfaith dialogue and engagement -- and this series offers an excellent opportunity to hear from people representing diverse faith communities and other sectors of society,” director of programs and community engagement Ashley Clemmer said.

Hearth, Heart, Home: Skara Brae's Early Stone Age Dwellings

Archaeological Institute of America, Houston Society

“WORLD’S GREAT
NEOLITHIC FIND” AND THE CONCEPT OF HOME ARE THE SUBJECT OF DISCOVER LECTURE
SERIES 
 

Home is where the
hearth is in Skara Brae
 

January 8,
2018 (Houston, Texas) — The 50th Anniversary Season of the
Archaeological
Institute of America, Houston Society

continues its Sankofa year – revealing how the past impacts our future – with
an engrossing lecture by Nick Card on a UNESCO World Heritage site – Skara
Brae, a superbly preserved Neolithic hut settlement set on Orkney Island,
Scotland, which is surrounded by more than 20+ structures. The site includes
the 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae; the giant chambered grave of Maeshowe;
and the Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar, two huge neighboring
circles of standing stones.  Card
believes that this farming community of a few thousand-people coalesced into
larger tribal units, perhaps with an elite ruling class, which began to
construct bigger and bigger monuments.  Discovered
in 2003, archaeologists believe the Orkney Islands served as a cultural center
for people of the New Stone Age. Card, Project Research Manager, Orkney
Research Centre for Archaeology, (ORKA) has been part of the team excavating
the site since its discovery.  He will
focus his discussion on the hut settlement, Skara Brae. The settlement is the
first place discovered on the Island, and consists of eight stone-built
structures connected by low covered passageways with stone slab roofs –
structures we would refer to as a “home.” 
Each featured a large square room with a fireplace, a bed and a shelved
dresser.  They sheltered people for 600
years from 3200BC to 2200BC.  What does
“home” mean to you? How do you know when you are “home?”  Join members of the Archaeology Society for
Card’s lecture “Hearth, Heart, Home: Skara Brae’s Early Stone Age Dwellings,”
to learn more about this site, described as the “World’s Greatest Neolithic
Find.”

About the Speaker

Nick Card has worked widely
throughout Britain since graduating from Glasgow University with an MA Honors
Archaeology. Over the last decade he has directed and managed a wide range of
both research and commercial projects for the Orkney Archaeological Trust and
latterly for the Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology of the University of
Highlands and Islands (ORCA). He also contributes to various teaching modules
within the Archaeology Department of the University of the Highlands and
Islands and has assisted with the establishment of an Archaeology Institute
within the University of the Highlands and Islands.




Since the inscription of Orkney’s World Heritage
Site (WHS) the 
Heart of Neolithic Orkney, he has been involved in research and fieldwork
relating to the sites: as director of the excavations at Bookan Chambered Tomb;
as coordinator of the WHS geophysics program; and as a major contributor to the
Research Agenda. His interests lie in all aspects of the prehistory of Britain
and the Highlands and Islands with particular reference to the Neolithic. He
has also co-directed the major excavations at the extensive Bronze Age cemetery
of the Knowes of Trotty and the Iron Age complex at Mine Howe.




Since 2004 Nick has directed the Ness of Brodgar
excavations in the very heart of the WHS. This project has evolved from several
seasons of small-scale test trenches and evaluations to large scale excavation
that has become internationally recognized and reported widely in both the
popular and academic press including the cover article in 
National
Geographic
 August 2014.  In 2009
the Ness was recognized by the American Institute of Archaeology; in 2011, it
won the Current Archaeology Research Project of the Year; and in 2012 was
awarded the international Andante Travel Archaeology Award, having been runner
up in 2008.




Nick has lectured widely in the UK and abroad at
all levels on the Ness excavations, the WHS and Orcadian archaeology in
general. Since 2010 he has also undertaken four mini-lecture tours of the USA
speaking by invitation to a number of institutions including the Smithsonian,
Harvard Clubs of DC and NY, the Sorbonne, the British Museum, the Australian
Museum, the AIA in Salem, Oregon, the George Bush Memorial Library in Texas, and
the Explorers Club in DC.  Recently he was awarded the Samuel Kress
lectureship for 2016-17 by the Archaeological Institute of America.

2018 CASE-PRH Fellowship

In partnership with the Center for Art and Social Engagement at the University of Houston's McGovern College of the Arts, Project Row Houses has created a fellowship program that invites artists and cultural practitioners to the Third Ward to work alongside urban planners, educators and policymakers. The fellows will engage in creative collaborations that involve the Third Ward community and address issues important to them. 

The two fellows will have a year-long mentorship with UH School of Art professor and Project Row Houses founder Rick Lowe along with project administrators Sixto Wagan, director of the UH Center for Art and Social Engagement, and Ryan N. Dennis, PRH's Curator and Programs Director.  Local artists, faculty members, community members and selected leaders will offer their support during this process. The Fellows will present to the public their research–to-date at the end of their fellowship.  

2018 Call for Applications

As the pilot year comes to a close, PRH and CASE are seeking two new Fellows – one local to Houston and one non-local individual - already engaged in this work whose practice would benefit from a mentorship and year-long engagement with Project Row Houses and UH’s Center for Art & Social Engagement. 

The fellowship program brings artists, cultural practitioners, urban planners, educators, and policymakers to engage with the PRH process and the greater Houston community. Through the program, it is our hope to educate and empower the next generation of leaders in socially engaged art and activism, disseminate a known successful practice, and seed discourse across the nation. 

Benefits of the program include: 

  • a stipend of $15,000,
  • $5,000 project/research budget 
  • a community Brain Trust of local artists, community members, and faculty to advise and ground the project in a local discourse, and
  • for non-Houston Fellows local housing at Project Row Houses with $1,000 in travel support

In return, the fellows are asked to engage our communities – Third Ward, university, artistic, and myriad other – in a process that involves:

  • a public presentation of previous work and Fellowship guiding questions at the beginning of the Fellowship, 
  • Present a public talk/project at the end of residency 
  • Co-organizing a Community Conversation with PRH Curator and Programs Director and CASE Director 
  • Monthly meetings with the program directors

The application process for this program consists of a brief narrative, no more than two pages (we need more of a word count for this probably), that addresses the following: 

  • What will be the guiding questions for your work in this fellowship? 
  • What would this fellowship with UH & PRH allow for that you have not yet investigated/achieved?

In support of the primary questions above, please address these ideas:  

  • How does this investigation build upon your history of community engagement?
  • How will the fellowship contribute to the development of your creative career?
  • What are your leadership strengths, and how will the fellowship either complement or enhance those strengths?
  • In what ways can the university community support/enhance your creative investigation?
  • In what ways can PRH support your ongoing practice in the field?
  • For non-resident applicants, please include an ideal timeline for your Fellowship keeping in mind the practicalities of your existing commitments and the Fellowship stipend and travel budget. Would you move to Houston for the entire year, stay for multiple months at a time, or conduct consistent week-long visits? We will take in consideration your commitments and the needs of our communities.

Additionally, applicants will submit a resume/curriculum vitae and samples of previous work for use in contextualizing your work to our stakeholders. The application can be completed online. Please submit all materials by November 21, 2017. Notification of fellowship recipients will occur by December 13.

Invisible No More: Reclaiming the Significant Roles of Prehistoric Women

Sankofa - revealing how the past impacts our future.

The 50th
Anniversary Season of the
Archaeological Institute of America,
Houston Society

continues its Sankofa year –
revealing how the past impacts our future – with a FREE Discover Lecture on the
significant societal contributions of prehistoric women. Dr. James M. Adovasio,
shares his compelling scientific research on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 6:30
p.m. in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Brown Auditorium Theater at a talk,
“Invisible No More: Reclaiming the Significant Roles of Prehistoric Women.” Dr.
Adovasio is an expert on uncovering perishable items such as baskets, weaving,
ropes and cords, etc. which were made and used by women. His research has
revealed how women were pivotal in a wide range of culture-building endeavors,
including the invention of language, the origins of agriculture, and the
conceptualization of boat building. His gender-busting book, The Invisible
Sex: Uncovering the True Roles of Women in Pre-History
exploded the view of
pre-historic women cowering behind boulders while their men hunted in fur
skins. Join us as we learn a new story of women in pre-history which emerges
with provocative implications for our assumptions about gender today.  KMPG is the underwriter of this
boundary-breaking lecture sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America,
Houston Society.
