Chamber Music

By Arthur Kopit

In this absurdist dark comedy, a group
from the women’s ward in an asylum call a
meeting to plan a pre-emptive attack on the
men’s ward. Each believes herself to be a
fierce historical figure—Joan of Arc, Queen
Isabel of Spain, Gertrude Stein, Amelia
Earhart and others. Things get out of hand
when the plan transforms into the unsettling
demise of one of their own.

“Kopit’s absurd logic is delightful
and disturbing.”
—The Chicago Reader 5


The Stories We Live By

Our lives are stories. In many ways, science, philosophy, theology, art and all other disciplines
are the human attempt to reflect upon and to make sense of the stories of our lives. In our
contemporary context, truth is under attack from many sources. Perhaps a way to reconnect
with the truths of our existence is simply to get back in touch with our stories. By engaging
imagination through storytelling, we can rescue reality from the clutches of ideologies that
distort and deceive. We can rediscover an authentic faith in the possibility of a more just,
humane and truthful world.

The St. Catherine of Siena Center of Dominican University examines critical issues
of church and society in light of faith and scholarship. The Center calls together a wide
community of faith committed to deepening insight into the role of the Christian in today’s

Catholic Literary Imagination Conference
Featuring: Dana Gioia, Alice McDermott,
Ron Hansen, Tobias Wolff, and many others

September 19–September 21, 2019
Loyola University Chicago

Tickets sold through Loyola at the link below. Conference fees vary.

The Siena Center is honored to co-sponsor this international biennial conference with
Loyola University Chicago. Join us to interact with over sixty writers, poets, filmmakers,
playwrights, journalists, editors, publishers, students, and critics who will explore a variety of
questions surrounding the Catholic imagination in literature and the arts. What is the future
of the Catholic literary tradition? How is Catholic thought and practice (or the absence of it)
represented in literature, poetry, and cinema?

Register at:

The Siena Center is named for St. Catherine of Siena, a 14th century laywoman who worked untiringly
for the reform of the church and for social justice in the world. Her passionate devotion to the central
issues of church and society inspires the work of the center and informs its schedule. Please join us in our
exploration of current topics—social and spiritual.

The Stories We Tell:
Latinx Narratives and the Future
of Catholicism
Natalia Imperatori-Lee, PhD

Wednesday, October 16, 2019, 7:00 p.m.
Aula Auditorium, Priory Campus $10

Dr. Imperatori-Lee, professor of Religious Studies at
Manhattan College, will explore how demographic, historical
and literary narratives have shaped our Catholic imagination
in the United States. By looking closely at narratives by
and about Latinx Catholics, we can envision a future for
our troubled church. This future relies on our embracing of
memory, the sacredness of the everyday, and the role of
women in leadership.

This event is co-presented with Dominican University’s
Theology Department and University Ministry.


River of Fire: One Woman’s
Spiritual Journey to Get Jesus Right
Helen Prejean, CSJ

Monday, November 4, 2019, 7:00 p.m.
Lund Auditorium $10

Sister Helen Prejean’s commitment to the dignity of all has inspired millions for over thirty
years, and her continued passion for justice is a call to action for us all today. She is known
around the world for her tireless work against the death penalty and has been instrumental
in sparking national dialogue on capital punishment and in shaping the Catholic Church’s
vigorous opposition to all executions. After witnessing an execution, Sr. Helen realized that this
lethal ritual would remain unchallenged unless its secrecy was stripped away, and so she sat
down and wrote the bestselling book, Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death
Penalty in the United States. She will speak on her recent memoir, River of Fire. The book
chronicles the story of her spiritual journey before the events of Dead Man Walking took place.

Responses to the Climate Crisis
from Science and Religion

As Pope Francis noted in Laudato Si’, we are called to advocate for an “integral ecology”
which honors the relationship between humanity and other parts of the natural world. If
science tells us what is happening to the earth’s climate and how to respond, then faith can
reveal why we should care and who we are called to be in the midst of this crisis. In this way,
we can use scientific analysis and theological reflection in cooperative harmony to respond
more completely to both the ecological and social effects of climate change.

The Wonder of Creation:
How Scientists Have Engaged Faith Throughout History

Richard Woods, OP, PhD with Scott Kreher, PhD

Thursday, September 12, 2019, 7:00 p.m.
Aula Auditorium, Priory Campus $10

Great religious figures often manifested a profound
love of and appreciation of nature. Many of the world’s
greatest scientists were also people of deep faith. The
contributions of both religion and science deepened
humanity’s sense of wonder and awe at the phenomenon
of Creation. This lecture will explore some of the
outstanding achievements of that convergence and its
importance. As both socio-biologist E. O. Wilson and
Pope Francis have urged, science and religion must work
together to save the world from environmental disaster.
Fr. Richard Woods, OP, PhD is a professor of theology
and Dr. Scott Kreher, PhD is an associate professor of
biology, both at Dominican University.

Science and Religion:
Prerequisites for an Integral Ecology

Nancy Tuchman, PhD and Michael Schuck, PhD

Thursday, October 10, 2019, 7:00 p.m. Aula Auditorium, Priory Campus $10

Pope Francis’s Laudato Sí’ resurfaced the core question: are science and religion truly co-
dependent dimensions of Earth knowledge? This issue has preoccupied scientist Dr. Nancy
Tuchman and theologian Dr. Michael Schuck since the inception of their integral ecology
textbook, Healing Earth. This lecture will explore their interdisciplinary work around the science,
ethics, spirituality and action necessary for healing our Earth. Dr. Tuchman is a professor of
biology, and Dr. Schuck is an associate professor of theology, both at Loyola University Chicago.

Biblical Themes in
Laudato Si’

Dianne Bergant, CSA, PhD

Thursday, November 14, 2019, 7:00 p.m.
Aula Auditorium, Priory Campus $10

In his encyclical on ecology, Pope Francis
concentrated on three important themes:
our understanding of human nature, the
interconnectedness of all creation, and
the interdependence of all creatures. This
lecture will offer biblical grounding for these
important themes. Sr. Dianne is Carroll
Stuhlmueller, CP, Distinguished Professor
Emerita of Old Testament Studies at
Catholic Theological Union.


If you enjoy our lectures and symposia, we are sure you will love these opportunities to study
with excellent faculty, engage in lively discussion, and come away with a richer understanding
of the Christian disciple’s role in the contemporary world.
The cost is $50 per course.

stages of life? 9

Prison + Neighborhood Arts Project:

The Long Term

September 4–December 20, 2019
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 4, 4:00–7:00 p.m. with a talk at 5:30 p.m.

Prison + Neighborhood Arts Project (PNAP) is a visual arts and humanities project that
connects teaching artists and scholars to men at Stateville Maximum Security Prison through
classes, workshops and guest lectures. Classes offered include subjects ranging from poetry,
visual arts, and film study to political theory, social studies, and history.

The Long Term is a culmination of projects that emerged out of classes and collaborative
work from 2016–18, led by artists, writers and members of PNAP. The theme of the exhibitions
centers around people serving extraordinarily long prison terms (60, 70, and 80 years) and
the effects these sentences produce: long-term struggles for freedom, long-term loss in
communities, and long-term relationships behind the prison wall. It is with great excitement
and pride to announce that Dominican University will be hosting this exhibition in the Fall of
2019 in the O’Connor Art Gallery.
