CELEBRATING

FIFTY YEARS OF

LIFELONG LEARNING

Dear friends:

For the past 30 years, it has been my honor to lead the Susanne M. Glasscock

School of Continuing Studies and to witness our substantial growth. Ours is the

only school at Rice whose sole mission is to provide educational opportunities

to the broader community. Before I retire next summer, it will also be my privilege

to lead the Glasscock School in celebrating our 50th anniversary.

As dean, I am pleased to invite you to join us on April 8 at the Anderson-Clarke

Center for a festival celebrating curiosity. It will feature the best of what the

Glasscock School has to offer, including educational experiences, hands-on

activities, food trucks, prizes and more. Save the date!

This celebration is also an opportunity for me to thank you personally for helping

us serve you. Since 2013 alone, some 55,000 of you have enrolled because a topic

piqued your curiosity, challenged your skills, provided new career opportunities, enriched your travel

and leisure or made you more productive and current.

Perhaps you took a course in the arts, humanities and sciences, creative writing, photography

or foreign languages. Maybe you completed one of our master’s programs in teaching or liberal

studies, or traveled from around the world to study English here with us. You might have pursued

one of our 50+ online programs for nonprofit, financial, paralegal, human resources and other

professional paths. You could be one of thousands of teachers in the Houston area who have turned

to us to help prepare your students for college. Some of you may have children who are learning to

read in our pre-K programs, or who are participating in creative writing summer camps.

You have many goals, but we have just one: to support you.

Thank you for attending our programs and joining the Rice learning community. It has been

a joy and a privilege to be surrounded by so many dedicated colleagues at Continuing Studies

and throughout Rice — and to meet so many of you who spend your time with us.

Hope to see you soon.

Mary McIntire, Ph.D.

Ludwig van Beethoven: Master of Emotion

“To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable.”

— Ludwig van Beethoven

Carlos Andrés Botero, the dynamic musical ambassador and assistant conductor of the Houston

Symphony, returns to examine the “middle years” of Ludwig van Beethoven’s life and music.

This period of Beethoven’s life was marked by personal and musical struggle, which resulted in

some of his most profound and expressive works. Maestro Botero will serve as a guide for music

aficionados and those new to classical music with this accessible exploration of one of the most

influential composers of all time. This class is offered in conjunction with the Houston Symphony’s

spring performances of Beethoven’s works, demonstrating the tremendous breadth of compositional

talents and the dramatic emotional power that permeate Beethoven’s oeuvre.

Note: Participants will receive a special discount on tickets for selected performances of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6

and 7 and Fidelio by the Houston Symphony in March 2017.

Democracy and Disagreement

If the 2016 U.S. presidential election taught us anything, it is that there may be no limit to the

degree of disagreement possible within a democracy. As diversity of perspectives is a hallmark of

democracy, such disagreement is both natural and understandable. Yet how we respond to these

divisions can have significant implications for the stability of public order, civil society and even

our personal relationships. In this course, Elizabeth Barre, Ph.D., will help participants consider

their obligations as citizens in the midst of deep disagreement. By exploring various psychological,

anthropological and philosophical accounts of disagreement, participants will better understand

their own ethical commitments, the commitments of those who disagree with them, and what

these disagreements mean for how we should organize our collective lives together. The course

will include lectures and discussion. It will also offer insights on conducting effective, respectful

disagreement but will not focus on in-class practice of these skills.

CO-SPONSORS: Rice University Department of Philosophy; Rice University Department of Religion

SECTION DATES: Five Wednesdays, March 1-29, 7-8:30 p.m.

FEE: If registering by February 15: $165 After February 15: $175 For Rice alumni: $158

CEUs: 0.75

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:

• Natural theories of disagreement (philosophical, biological and psychological)

• Cultural theories of disagreement (anthropological and sociological)

• Disagreement, truth and ethical relativism

• Disagreement and democracy (political theories to resolve and respond to ethical disagreements in public life)

• Disagreement and citizenship: How to incorporate respect and civility — two key virtues of democratic

deliberation — into our collective conversations about the good

INSTRUCTOR: Elizabeth Barre, Ph.D., is the assistant director of the Center for Teaching Excellence and an

affiliate professor in the Department of Religion at Rice University. Trained as a comparative ethicist, her research uses

contemporary western political philosophy to engage Catholic and Muslim arguments about legal tolerance within

morally and religiously diverse societies. She taught an extended version of this course to Rice undergraduates in

the fall of 2016.

World War I: 100 Years Later

World War I lasted from 1914 to 1918 and

resulted in an estimated 37 million casualties,

decimating the male populations of many

European nations. The Great War between

the Allies (originally the Triple Entente

of France, Britain and Russia) and the

Central Powers (the German Empire, Austro-

Hungarian Empire, Ottoman Empire and

the Kingdom of Bulgaria) caused the downfall

of four empires, ended in an armistice

and culminated in the Peace of Versailles.

It reshaped Europe, changed the power

structure in the Middle East, led to the

resurgence of Germany and also to World

War II. In honor of the 100th anniversary of

World War I, military historian John Bradley

Exhibit at the Tower of London in 2014 on the 100th anniversary

Young Planets and the Formation of Solar Systems

During the past two decades, more

than 3,000 planets have been

discovered orbiting other stars in

our galaxy. These discoveries have

galvanized interest among scientists

and the general public in some of

the oldest questions humankind

has considered: How did we get

here? Are we alone? Christopher

Johns-Krull, Ph.D., will introduce

participants to current theories

of planet formation and the

observations modern astronomers

use to test these ideas. Participants

will learn about the history of

our current understanding of the

formation of the solar system as

well as the most current theories

of where and how planets form. We will also consider the prospects for finding life elsewhere

in our solar system and in our near galactic neighborhood. In addition, the course will consider

how new observations with next generation telescopes and satellites will answer many questions

related to our understanding of the universe and our place within it.

throughout the galaxy

INSTRUCTOR: Christopher Johns-Krull, Ph.D., is a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy

at Rice University. His research focuses on observational studies of star and planet formation, with a particular

emphasis on the search for extra-solar planets orbiting very young stars. Recently, teams led by Dr. Johns-Krull have

announced the discovery of a hot Jupiter orbiting a star 2 million years old as well as evidence that a hot Jupiter

orbiting another young star is being evaporated by the intense radiation from the star. Dr. Johns-Krull has also taken

part in the discovery of several additional hot Jupiters orbiting middle-aged stars like the sun.

Full World: Houston’s Economic and

Ecologic Future

“‘Change’ and ‘enough’ are two of the hardest words for people.”

— Jim Blackburn

A boundless, “anything’s possible” spirit characterizes much of Houston’s development, business

and life. How do we reconcile this ethos with the growing recognition that our natural resources

are finite, that we live in a “full world”? Environmental lawyer, planner and professor Jim Blackburn

shares a model for how Houston and other cities can thrive in the midst of such challenges. This

course will examine the increasingly interwoven economic and ecologic well-being of our region

and the key role of market systems. “Full World” outlines a future in which concepts of economic

value are redefined and a “circular economy” (one consistent with cycles of nature) is the norm.

Natural hazards will need to be addressed in light of climate change. Natural capital — Houston’s

best-kept secret — such as our parks, preserves and waterways, will become more and more

important. In a full world, the energy industry will change, our business practices will change, our

recreational lives will change, we will rethink our relationship to “stuff,” and even our spiritual

thinking may be transformed.

Music and the Human Spirit:

The Soundtrack of Your Life

“Music: The art and science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds or tones in

varying melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre, especially so as to form structurally

complete and emotionally expressive compositions.”

– Webster’s New World Dictionary

Movies and Music

Music is often an integral part of filmmaking, with the power to make images more vivid and

to elicit strong emotions and memories. From the darkly dramatic score of “A Streetcar Named

Desire” to the soaring notes of the “Star Wars” theme, most of us can remember some particularly

moving music from our favorite films. Professor of music composition and theory Arthur

Gottschalk, D.M.A., will explore the history and impact of music in film, including some of the

most influential uses of music in classic motion pictures.

Reading Children’s Literature DAYTIME AND EVENING

Many of us have a book we read or had read

to us when we were children that shaped us in

important ways. We may revisit these stories with

our children as parents, grandparents, teachers

and in other roles. We may also turn to children’s

books for the joy and deep truths they offer

us throughout life. This course returns adult

readers to those roots and asks questions about

the meaning and purpose of children’s literature.

The serious study of children’s literature is

a relatively new phenomenon in academia.

Children’s literature expert Joshua Eyler, Ph.D.,

serves as this course’s guide, exploring how literary

analysis and personal meaning can illuminate this

powerful genre. Join us for a journey through

Oz, Pooh Corner, the Sahara, medieval England,

Hogwarts and 1950’s Georgia, all the way back

to your own childhood.

The History of Victorian England

For much of the past century, we have pictured Victorians as people who lived sober, prudent lives in

overstuffed houses filled with overstuffed furniture. Literature and history commonly depict Victorians

as people who revered religion, family, country and social convention. However, modern scholarship

has brought this stereotypical portrait into question. Historian Newell Boyd, Ph.D., will survey Great

Britain from 1837 to 1901, emphasizing research that challenges traditional views of Victorian times,

highlighting a society that was more irreverent, creative and less inhibited than previously believed.

Mindfulness and Meditation for Parents,

Teachers and Caregivers

“Children, by their very nature, are going to call into question and perhaps disrupt

everything you know, and that is a great opportunity for bringing mindful awareness

to the situation … Our live-in Zen masters teach us to accept things as they are.”

— Jon Kabat-Zinn

Raising and educating children can be among

life’s greatest joys. But caring for children of

all ages also entails inevitable stress for parents,

teachers and other caregivers. Remaining present,

compassionate and supportive of children while

juggling the many demands of adult life is a

universal challenge. Meditation and mindfulness,

the practice of noticing and accepting the present

moment without judgment, can be powerful

coping tools. Tibetan meditation expert Alejandro

Chaoul and child and adult mindfulness educator

Christine Galib will examine the impact of stress

on physical, mental and social aspects of wellness and share strategies to foster relaxation and

resilience in adults and children. Drawing on meditative and mindfulness traditions, research

and practices, this course is designed to help parents, teachers, grandparents, healthcare providers

and others flourish as caregivers and serve as “purposeful mindfulness models” for children.

Note: Participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a cushion if choosing to sit on the floor. This

course is offered for educational purposes only. Please consult with the professional of your choosing if you are seeking

specific therapeutic, diagnostic or parenting advice. While strategies shared are designed to support both adult and

Urban Gardening DAY AND EVENING

Urban gardens have long played an important role in

nourishing city dwellers and enhancing communities,

from the victory gardens of World War II to the verdant

plots springing up in yards, empty lots and on rooftops

today. With the increasing popularity of fresh, local

“farm to table” foods and a return to living in the core of

many cities, there is a growing interest in urban gardening.

Gardening offers flavorful, healthy and inexpensive

food, fresh air and exercise, the pride and satisfaction

of providing your own food, and a deep connection to

the place we call home. Houston gardeners may enjoy

abundant produce and flowers at least nine months of the year, with proper plant selection.

Master naturalist Glenn Olsen will provide a comprehensive overview of urban gardening in the

Houston region with a field trip to a local farmers’ market.

The Self-Portrait: Beyond the Surface

Artists have been using themselves as models

since humans first made marks on the caves of

Lascaux, France. However, it was not until the early

Renaissance that artists selected themselves as the

central subject matter in works of art. The mirror

has not lost its appeal since then. Our fascination

continues today with the enormous popularity

of “selfies.” Across time, the most powerful

self-portraits have gone beyond the surface to

reveal something personal, specific and revealing

about the artist. A rich history of self-portraits will provide the foundation for this course. Exploring

variations in scale, style, media, format, pose, coloration and narrative, we will review self-portraits by

Albrecht Durer, Rembrandt, Vincent Van Gogh, Gustave Courbet, Frida Kahlo, Egon Schiele,

Max Beckmann, Gwen John, Mary Cassatt, Cindy Sherman, Jenny Saville, and Alice Neel. Class

demonstrations will highlight a range of techniques including paint and pencil. Participants will

then embark on their own self-portrait journey, starting with a photograph and using the media

of their choice. This course will include substantial in-class time devoted to producing one or

more self-portraits. Artists at all levels are welcome. This class will include a museum visit.

The Art of Collage

Coined by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century, the term

“collage” has become an important part of modern art vocabulary and practice. The French

word, “coller”— to glue—defines this technique of art production where images are made by

assembling different forms to create something new and unique. Collage materials may include

newspaper, magazines, text, photographs, photocopies, handmade paper, ribbons, fabric and all

manner of media that may be adhered to paper or canvas. The class will draw inspiration from

artists who have created innovative collage works, such as: Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Henri

Matisse, Faith Ringgold, Mary McCleary, Max Ernst, Kurt Schwitters, Kara Walker, Eric Carle,

Louise Nevelson, Robert Rauschenberg, Romare Bearden and Larry Rivers. In-class time will be

devoted to creating collages; no homework will be required. Artists at all levels are welcome. This

class will include a museum visit to view master collage works.

The Drawing Lab

In this exploratory lab workshop, students will draw from life with charcoal and silverpoint materials.

Charcoal is commonly used to create quick sketches and can be blended and erased multiple

times to invent dynamic drawings. Silverpoint, a rare material popular during the Renaissance,

requires more specific marks to create delicate, permanent drawings that utilize cross-hatching

instead of blending. While sessions will focus primarily on still life drawing, the course will also

include two clothed live model sessions, during which students may experiment with their preferred

drawing material. Images of artwork and instructor demonstrations will be shown at the start of

each class to illustrate various techniques.

Note: This course is recommended for students who have completed a basic or intermediate drawing course and

are seeking to deepen their drawing skills and experiment with new approaches.

Street Photography

Street photography has captured popular

imagination in recent years. Stepping out of

the studio to document candid, unposed

moments in public places can result in

powerful images. This course explores the

distinct qualities that distinguish street

photography. Photographer Daniel Kramer

presents the history of the genre and also

leads students on street photography walks

in Houston. Past locations have included the

Houston Rodeo, the Houston Ship Channel,

a boxing gym and an Elvis-impersonator

performance. Class sessions will alternate

between on-location, shooting throughout

the city and in-class critiques.

Mastering the Art of Photographic Workflow

All successful photographers must learn to master the art of workflow, the organizational

backbone of the photographic process. “Workflow” involves what happens from the moment you

capture an image, through enhancing and preserving your photographs for years to come. It can

have a profound influence on your photography, as the decisions you make early in the process

limit your choices later in the process. In this course, professional photographer Bob Warren

will walk participants through each of the four components of workflow: capture, edit, process and

output, exploring how they influence results and how you can develop a personalized workflow.

Participants will also learn to recognize when to modify workflow due to a change in work,

software or even camera.

Note: Participants must be familiar with their camera (film or digital with manual mode capability) and should have

some experience taking photographs.
