Rust Belt Apocalypse and the Eucharist

March 23, 2017 at Richard Klarchek Information Commons in Chicago.


After a week in jail following an Iraq War protest in 2003, Chris Haw, as a disaffected evangelical, moved into “America’s most dangerous city” to start a small community in an abandoned house and work with a Catholic church. He worked there for a decade as a teacher, reclaimed woodworker, community organizer, potter, and carpenter. Joining with the church’s liturgy, theology, and service with the poor, Haw came to see Catholic faith and practice more starkly against the backdrop of societal decay, war, despair, and abandonment. In his lecture, “Rust Belt Apocalypse and the Eucharist,” Haw will share how a poetic mixture of myth and logic, an active patience amidst godlessness, and the drama of scapegoating as symbolized in the Mass all permeate his ongoing conversion and research.

Robert S. Abbott: His Life and Legacy

February 27, 2017 at Perlstein Hall in Chicago.


Join the Office of Campus Life, the Baha’i Community, and Bright Star Community Outreach on Monday, February 27, 2017 at 7pm for an evening to celebrate the legacy of Robert S. Abbott, founder of the Chicago Defender and graduate of Kent College of Law (1898).

In 1905 Mr. Abbott created The Chicago Defender not only to encourage people to migrate north for a better life, but to fight for their rights once they got there. The slogan of the paper and the first goal was “American race prejudice must be destroyed.” Learn about his life, inspiration, and how the legacy continues.

Hear stories from his great-grandniece and President of the
Chicago Defender Charities, Myiti Sengstacke-Rice, as she
shares the timeline of his struggles and successes of bringing
job opportunities and justice to the Black community during the early 1900s. You will also gain insight from Ron Browne; retired teacher, former curriculum coach from the Chicago Public Schools, and member of the Chicago Bahá’í Community, about Mr. Abbott’s faith and how it inspired him to stay hopeful and triumphant.

LECTURE: The Origins of Two Provincial Capitals in Upper Egypt

January 04, 2017 at Oriental Institute Museum in Chicago.


The Oriental Institute Lecture Series organized by the University of Chicago brings notable scholars from around the country and abroad as they present on new breakthroughs, unique perspectives, and innovative research applications related to the Ancient Middle East.
The Origins of Two Provincial Capitals in Upper Egypt: The Two Sister-Sites of Tell Edfu and Dendara
Presented by Nadine Moeller, Associate Professor of Egyptian Archaeology, and Gregeory Marouard, Research Associate, The Oriental Institute. The ongoing fieldwork at Tell Edfu has recently focused on the excavation of a settlement quarter dating to the 3rd millennium BCE which pushes back the origins of the town of Edfu to the 4th Dynasty (ca. 2550 BCE). The newest addition to the Oriental Institute’s fieldwork program in Egypt, at the ancient provincial capital of Dendara, has also led to new insights into the oldest settlement remains and the original foundation of this city. This lecture provides an overview of the most recent results from both sites offering a comparative perspective on the long-term development of early urban centers in southern Egypt.

6:30-7:00 p.m. Pre Lecture Tour/Registration 7:00-8:00 p.m. Presentation and discussion 8:00-8:45 p.m. Reception
