Michael Emerson, Academic Director, Kinder Institute for Urban Research, will present a Project CURATE public lecture on Saturday, February 21, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. in Abraham Station. All are invited to this free lecture.
Director of the formerly named Center on Race, Religion and Urban Life, Emerson’s topic will be “Building the Soul of Houston.” His research and teaching areas are race and ethnic relations, religion, and urban methods.
Project CURATE was created as a means for moving theology and theory from academic classrooms and churches into the street. Pilot funding was provided through grants from the United Methodist Church’s Geneal Commission on Religion and Race and the Texas Annual Conference’s Center for Missional Excellence.
