Sociologist Jennifer Augustine awarded $160,000 NIH research grant

She will study whether and how the education of a mother affects her children

Jennifer Augustine

As Americans, we are often told that education is the key to success. The more education you receive, the better your life – and the lives of your children – will be.

However, does it matter at what point an individual decides to pursue a higher education? How does a parent earning a degree after having children affect the trajectory of the child’s life?

Dr. Jennifer M. Augustine, assistant professor of sociology, has been awarded a $160,000 National Institutes of Health grant to spend the next two years researching answers to those questions.

“I’ve always been interested in the causal effects of education,” said Dr. Augustine. “Now I have the opportunity to study how education changes people and affects their child rearing practices.”

Dr. Augustine is the sole principal investigator on this project which is titled, “Mother’s Education after Childbearing and Family Well-being.” She will examine whether and how the education of a mother affects her children.

“Specifically, I will study women who pursue higher education after having children,” she said. “I want to find out if the children improve academically, behaviorally, and physically and how that correlates with the mother’s education.”

Dr. Tracy Xavia Karner, chair of the Department of Sociology said of Dr. Augustine’s NIH research grant, “It is quite an honor for Dr. Augustine to receive this award at such an early point in her career. It is an impressive accomplishment.”

Dr. Augustine earned her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011. Following the completion of her doctoral work, Dr. Augustine was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Sociology at Rice University. She joined the University of Houston as an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology last fall.

Dr. Augustine will be collaborating with Dr. Ariel Kalil, a developmental psychologist and professor from the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago. Their varying backgrounds mean that they will each approach the research from her own unique area of expertise.

According to Dr. Augustine, the project will attempt to accomplish three things:

  1. Describe the life course characteristics of mothers who return to school
  2. Estimate the long-term and short-term implications of mothers’ schooling on their children’s health and health-related outcomes
  3. Determine whether the links between mothers’ additional schooling and child outcomes are affected by the mothers’ post-schooling employment experiences, health, and parenting behaviors.

To draw her conclusions, Dr. Augustine will use information gathered from two well-known sources—the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth and the Fragile Families and Child Well-being Study.

“These studies offer a rich body of data,” said Dr. Augustine. “They provide across the board representation of individuals from varying demographics.”

At the conclusion of her study, Dr. Augustine will submit an article to be published in a peer reviewed journal, and write a policy brief outlining the results of her research that can be used to shape future government programs related to education. All of the material will become the basis for a book.

“This award validates the rigor and importance of Professor Augustine's work,” said Dr. Karner. “This NIH award will allow Professor Augustine to continue her very important work and will increase her competitiveness for further federal funding in the future.”

Rockefeller Foundation selects Lindahl-led project as Bellagio conference

Dr. Carl Lindahl organizing July 2014 international disaster recovery symposium

Carl Lindahl

The Rockefeller Foundation has identified the research of Dr. Carl Lindahl on how people survive and cope during major calamities as an “impact-oriented solution to a critical global problem.”

The Foundation has expressed that recognition by providing Dr. Lindahl with the use of the Bellagio Center in northern Italy to host the “Survivor-Centered Responses to Massive Disasters” conference in July 2014.  Dr. Lindahl is the Martha Gano Houstoun Research Professor in the Department of English and Director of the Houston Folklore Archive.

The three-day symposium will convene 19 scholars, ethnographers and public health specialists from five nations – Haiti, Italy, Japan, Sierra Leone and the United States – to strategize ways to help disaster survivors become active agents in their own recoveries.

The conference stems from work Dr. Lindahl, a folklorist in the Department of English, started with the Surviving Katrina and Rita in Houston Project, which he co-founded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

It was the world’s first disaster response effort to encourage and enable disaster survivors to take the lead in documenting their own experience of disaster.

Through the project, Dr. Lindahl and co-director Pat Jasper provided hurricane survivors with free training, as well as pay to record the stories of fellow evacuees in the Houston area.

The University of Houston supported the project with the use of its facilities, the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress provided personnel to the project and the Houston Endowment gave funding.

“Through the acts of sharing their stories, the survivor interviewers and survivor interviewees formed networks based on shared experience and shared afflictions; these bonds in turn strengthened their sense of community and aided in their recovery,” said Dr. Lindahl.

“The impact of survivor-to-survivor interviews on the participants’ behavioral health was so positive that our project was awarded mental health funding after two years of demonstrated results,” he said. “An approach that began at the University of Houston in the wake of Hurricane Katrina is now being adapted to respond to large-scale disasters in many nations.”

At the 2014 Bellagio Center conference, participants will refine current healing strategies for global implementation to improve the living conditions and emotional health of disaster survivors worldwide.

In the nations that will be represented at the Bellagio Center conference, there are ethnographers trained in how to listen to and engage survivors in their emotional recoveries. These ethnographers will report on their findings, discuss how to refine their responses, and then leave to apply immediate, on-the-ground implementation strategies for use in Haiti, Italy, Japan, and Sierra Leone.

Those four nations have experienced natural and man-made disasters that have permanently altered the lives of their citizens and the landscapes within their borders – the 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti; the 2012 and 2013 earthquakes in northern Italy, the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis in Japan; and the persisting after effects of the displacements caused by civil war that ravaged Sierra Leone from 1991 to 2002.

 “The survivors are the real experts in these disasters and the people most invested in the emotional healing of their communities,” Dr. Lindahl said. “By listening to the survivors and helping them share their stories and use their own traditional healing techniques, we can support the internal strength of the community in a process of self-healing.”

The Bellagio Center is a 50-acre property on a peninsula between lakes Como and Lecco in northern Italy. The Rockefeller Foundation has owned the property since 1959 and uses it to house residency programs for scholars, artists, thought leaders and policymakers and to host its own conferences related to the Foundation’s mission “to promote the well-being of humanity.”

About a third of the Bellagio Center conferences are organized by the Foundation. The rest, like the UH conference are “arranged by people and institutions that share in the Foundation’s vision of expanding opportunities for poor or vulnerable people,” according to the foundation website. Externally-organized conferences submit applications that are rigorously reviewed and the space is awarded on a competitive basis.

“I look upon this conference as the fruit of work that began right here at the University of Houston,” said Dr. Lindahl. “I want survivor-centered disaster response to continue to be identified with the University of Houston. Three University of Houston teachers will attend the conference in Bellagio, and I am urging the university community to join us in planning for a follow-up conference in 2015 to gauge our success and inspire further refinements and applications in our effort to address a major global problem.”

Major gifts advance the India Studies Program

Alumnus, community supporters give $200,000 plus to advance program

Dr. Arun Verma

Dr. Durga Agrawal

Dr. Arun Verma

Dr. Arun Verma

As the world’s largest democracy and fourth largest economy, India impacts the globe culturally, politically and financially. Knowing what’s happening in India and why is essential to success in the global marketplace. To ensure that University of Houston students have an opportunity to study India, some generous donors have provided financial support to the nascent India Studies Program in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

Alumnus Dr. Durga Agrawal, president and CEO of Piping Technology & Products, Inc., and his wife, Sushila, recently made a $100,000 gift to the India Studies Program, which was launched in 2011 and approved as a minor in 2012.

“UH has a very diverse group of students; in particular, there is a significant Indian student population,” said Dr. Agrawal. “I couldn't think of a better place than the University of Houston to be a leader in India Studies.”

“I hope that by learning about the immensely diversified contributions that have come from India, especially in math, science, and history, the students will be motivated to seek even higher education and make their own significant contributions to the world,” said Dr. Agrawal. “I would like to see the program grow in terms of expanded research in the areas of ancient culture, history, civilization, and scientific methods. As more program classes are offered, student interest expands as well.”

The Agrawals’ gift is funding the India Studies Program’s first postdoctoral fellowship. Dr. Jon Keune was selected as the first fellow after an extensive search conducted by Dr. Lois Zamora, chair of the Department of Comparative Cultural Studies, and Anjali Kanojia, director of the India Studies Program.

Dr. Keune is scheduled to begin his new role this month. He will teach courses within the India Studies program, conduct research, and complete his book manuscript.

Prior to accepting the position, Dr. Keune was a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Modern Indian Studies at the University of Göttingen in Germany. He earned his doctorate degree from Columbia University in New York.

In addition to the Agrawals’ donation, Dr. Arun Verma, CEO of Nova Asset Management, Inc., and his wife, Vinni, have committed $100,000 to undergraduate student scholarships and overall program support.

“Compared to other local schools, UH is more diversified and has shown more enthusiasm in developing a world class India Studies Program,” said Dr. Verma. “The expectation is that the students will increase their understanding of the complex Indian culture, its rich heritage, political system, economy, and core values for their personal and spiritual growth. In addition, students will be able to apply this knowledge in their future business and leadership roles.”

Two additional families, Dr. Rahul Nath and his wife, Usha, and Mr. Bal Sareen, also donated substantial funds for curriculum support of the India Studies program.

“India is a major player on the world’s stage in many ways,” said Dr. Zamora. “The support we are receiving from donors will help us to educate students about India…and not just students of Indian heritage, but also U.S. students who are going to be in the global workplace.”

One of the first students to enroll in the India Studies minor was CLASS senior Lesa Montague.

“When I learned that UH was going to be offering an India Studies minor, I decided to pursue it,” said Montague. “There is so much history in India, and that history is still being practiced today. The global power shift to Asia makes studying India very interesting.”

Although India Studies did not become an official minor within CLASS until 2012, there have been Hindi courses available for students to take for the past five years. Today, the India Studies Program offers classes about Indian culture, economics, literature, art, and history.

“Indian values and ideals are in sync with those of the U.S.,” said Dr. Verma. “Both are democratic countries, giving the basic rights of worship, free speech, etc. to its citizens. India is also on its way to becoming an economic power. The relations between India and the U.S. are on the increase. It is of great importance that two countries sharing strong similar values understand each other. It is hoped that this India Studies program will become a link for this part of the U.S.”

Filming Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art

Communications students seek to capture exhibition’s convivial spirit on film

A new exhibition at the Blaffer Art Museum will provide a multi-sensory experience to the guests who visit the museum this fall.

The Blaffer has planned an auditory and palpable experience for all that participate in the Houston iteration of Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art. The result is an exhibition that completely immerses visitors into the artists’ creations, including cameos in the films being produced on the show.

Students enrolled in Dr. Temple Northup’s Fall 2013 documentary filmmaking course will produce and direct new films about various parts of Feast in Houston as part of their course work.

UH is only the exhibit’s second stop since its genesis at the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago in 2012.

“The exhibition includes the display of objects, photographs, and videos as well as participatory projects staged during the run of the exhibition,” said Claudia Schmuckli, director and chief curator at the Blaffer Art Museum. “The theme of the exhibition also offers a unique platform for collaboration with multiple partners from a variety of disciplines both on and off campus.”

One partnership is with Dr. Northup, assistant professor at the Jack J. Valenti School of Communication, and his students. Last semester, his documentary filmmaking students created short films about food in Houston as part of the Gulf Coast Food Project at the University Houston, of which Dr. Northup is a co-director.  Several of those films have been selected as Feast installations.

“The goal of this collaboration is two-fold,” said Dr. Northup. “One, it will give my students some small projects to work on together as they plan and then eventually shoot their large semester project. Two, it should provide Blaffer with some nice video packages showing what they had going on during the Feast exhibition. I think it represents a really great way that two different departments can work together.”

In addition to the students’ films, the work of more than 25 professional artists will be on display in the exhibition, which has its public opening on September 6.

One performance piece is Ana Prvacki’s The Greeting Committee. As part of this work, UH faculty, staff, and students will welcome visitors to the museum with a spoonful of Serbian slatko, a sweet strawberry preserve served to guests as a traditional gesture of hospitality.

Another work is Lee Mingwei’s The Dining Project. Three Blaffer guests will have the opportunity to dine one-on-one with the artist after hours in the museum, seated within his unique sculptural installation.

The Smart Museum of Art described the exhibition as defining an important new category of contemporary artistic practice – “the artist-orchestrated meal.” It curated Feast as an examination of the history of the artist-orchestrated meal, assessing its roots in early-twentieth century European avant-garde art, its development over the past decades within Western art, and its current global ubiquity.

In Houston, the Blaffer curated Feast: A Dinner Series as the exhibition’s spring and summer preface to its September opening.

The dinners, hosted by Houston art collectors, featured meals prepared by Chef Philip Speer, director of culinary operations at Uchi restaurant, with wine pairings selected by sommelier David Keck, general manager and wine director at The Camerata at Paulie’s.

Each dinner for 30 guests was the result of a creative collaboration between artists and chefs. Every experience was developed around a concept or theme that explored and relayed in both aesthetic and culinary terms a unique, multi-sensory experience.

Nancy Elliott attended the July 20 dinner organized by the artists, The Art Guys. The dinner was held at Gensler Design Studio, located downtown in the Pennzoil Building. The Art Guys posed as “motivational speakers and leaders” who hosted a playful, company-retreat themed event.

“It was unique!” said Mrs. Elliott. “The Art Guys gave a hilarious presentation, during which time we enjoyed wonderful appetizers, each one a self-contained little work of art. Our first course was bagged up like Chinese take-out, but contained an assortment of items including a pickled quail egg and champagne grapes.”

The meal also included a dim-sum-like cart, sashimi, and other selections such as halibut, lobster and short rib.

“The atmosphere was one of levity -- from the hilarious presentation by The Art Guys to the whimsical presentation of the food,” Mrs. Elliott said.

Each of Feast’s artistic exhibitions presents a learning opportunity for Dr. Northup’s class.

“The student groups will have to choose from a list of Feast’s interesting activities and film the event,” said Dr. Northup. “This should include doing an interview with the artist(s), interviewing people in attendance, and getting footage of the event itself. They will then edit the footage into a short package.”

Blaffer is curating several public events to enhance and expand the Feast exhibition, including meals, food markets, film screenings, public lectures, an archived materials showcase, and performances that together will adapt Feast for a local audience.

The National Endowment for the Arts awarded the Blaffer Art Museum a $50,000 grant in support of its presentation of Feast.

UH Memories Project documentary selected as film festival finalist

Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival honors Center for Public History and UH libraries collaboration

The film, The University of Houston: War and Growth, 1939-1950, is a finalist for the best short documentary in the Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival, which will be held in Houston September 13 -15.

The film is part of the UH Memories Project, a collaboration between the Center for Public History and the Digital Library in the UH Libraries.

It was co-directed and co-written by Dr. Kathleen Brosnan, who at the time was an associate professor of history and associate director of the Center for Public History; Michele Reilly, head of digital services for UH Libraries; and Lori Paredes, a public history graduate student.

Additionally, the film is narrated by Marisa Ramirez, a senior UH media relations representative and a CLASS alumna who graduated with a degree in English.

The UH Memories Project is a full-length, multi-part documentary film that documents the history of the University of Houston and how it and the City of Houston have grown together.

The University of Houston Alumni Association provided financial support for the project during the 2012-2013 academic year. Additional support was provided by the Houston History Project under the direction of Dr. Joseph Pratt, the NEH-Cullen Professor of History and Business.

Dr. Pratt appears in the mini-documentary, The University of Houston: War and Growth, 1939-1950, that follows UH through its 1939 move to its current campus, the years of World War II, and the postwar changes associated with the GI Bill.

The short film can be view in its entirety on the UH YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzmEagxtWv4

Master choreographer Bill T. Jones inaugurates new lecture series

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts brings Jones to campus on Sept. 12

Legendary choreographer and visionary collaborator Bill T. Jones will deliver the first annual Mitchell Artist Lecture at 7 p.m., Sept. 12 at the University of Houston’s Moores Opera House.

Presented by the UH Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, the lecture is free and open to the public.

Mr. Jones is a multi-talented artist, choreographer, dancer, theater director and writer whose accolades include a 1994 MacArthur “Genius” Award and a Kennedy Center Honor in 2010.  He is co-founder and Artistic Director of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and serves as executive artistic director of New York Live Arts, a producer and presenter of contemporary performance in New York City.

"My career has been created to collide, to cooperate, to conflict, to co-inspire, to conspire, to work in tandem, in a word: to collaborate,” Mr. Jones said. “I look forward to sharing the intermingling of these aspects of collaboration in my Mitchell Artist Lecture.”

In his lecture, Jones will discuss his significant legacy of interdisciplinary collaborations over the course of his career, including artistic partnerships with Louise Nevelson, Kiki Smith, Toni Morrison, Jessye Norman, Keith Haring and dozens of others. Jones will address creative practice and collaboration through the lens of his iconic career and body-based art making.

“We are thrilled and honored to have the incomparable Bill T. Jones deliver the first ever Mitchell Artist Lecture,” said Karen Farber, director of the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at the University of Houston. “He encompasses everything that the Mitchell Center holds dear – artistic experimentation, activism, and true virtuosity all in one remarkable career. We are truly fortunate to bring this artist back to the Houston community and introduce his legacy to the many young artists here at University of Houston.”

Jones was inducted into the American Academy of Arts & Sciences in 2009 and named “An Irreplaceable Dance Treasure” by the Dance Heritage Coalition in 2000.  In 2010, he was one of five recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors, the highest recognition the United States can bestow on an artist.

His ventures into Broadway theater resulted in a 2010 Tony Award for Best Choreography in the critically acclaimed “FELA!,” the musical he co-conceived, co-wrote, directed and choreographed. He also earned a 2007 Tony Award for Best Choreography for “Spring Awakening,” as well as an Obie Award for the show’s 2006 off-Broadway run.  His choreography for the off-Broadway production of “The Seven” earned him a 2006 Lucille Lortel Award.

The Mitchell Artist Lectures will be held annually and feature individuals emblematic of artistic collaboration and innovation. Each fall, the event will include a leading artist discussing the power and potential of interdisciplinary collaboration.

University Commission on Women salutes two CLASS staffers

Difference Maker Award bestowed on Ms. Juanita Terrell and Dr. Elizabeth Gregory

The Difference Maker Committee of the University Commission on Women has honored two members of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences with its Difference Maker Award – Ms. Juanita Terrell and Dr. Elizabeth Gregory.

The honor recognizes an individual’s personal efforts at the University of Houston to support gender equity, inclusiveness and policies that benefit women and families.

Ms. Terrell, the office coordinator in the CLASS Dean’s office, was nominated for the award by Dr. Sarah Fishman, history professor and associate dean for undergraduate studies in the College.

In support of her nomination of Ms. Terrell, Dr. Fishman wrote:

Juanita Terrell trains the work study students who assist her with a wide variety of duties as office coordinator. While one or two of these students have been young men, in my 10 years as Associate Dean, the vast majority of them are young women. I have watched and marveled for years at what Ms. Terrell accomplishes as she trains these young women. Not only does she teach them the specifics of the job, she encourages them in their schooling, pushes them to excel, and provides them with counsel and great wisdom as they struggle with combining school, work and family. The job becomes much more than answering phones. These young women learn about succeeding in the world, encouraged and supported by Ms. Terrell. They all graduate!”

Dr. Gregory, director of the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program and a professor of English, was nominated by Dr. Beverly McPhail, director of the UH Women’s Resource Center.

About why she nominated Dr. Gregory, Dr. McPhail wrote:

“I nominated Elizabeth for the Difference Maker award because she does so much for the campus community and greater Houston community on issues of gender and equity. She has played a pivotal role in getting the ADVANCE grant submitted that would assist in the recruitment and retention of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) female faculty at UH. She is a member of the University Commission on Women. Also she works with the Friends of Women’s Studies to support and advance women across Houston, bringing together women for the wonderful Table Talk event each year. And she works with the refugee women service providers in Houston to teach refugee women how to transition to living successfully in the United States. Elizabeth amazes me because she does this in addition to her scholarly work, writing a book and blogging on the new later motherhood, and had a piece recently in the New York Times, all while raising two daughters. She is my role model!”

The University Commission on Women is the only presidentially-appointed commission on campus.  Its mission includes:

  • identify the concerns of women at the university
  • promote gender equity throughout all areas of the university community
  • recommend to the appropriate administrative offices ways to address the concerns of women at the university
  • communicate and collaborate with other committees and organizations to provide support, advocacy and information regarding women’s issues
  • raise awareness regarding behaviors, actions, issues, policies and procedures that affect the status of women.

The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences congratulates our Difference Maker Award winners and salutes your efforts to make our workplace better for everyone.
