To celebrate​ Opening Convocation, Duke Initiatives in Theology & the Arts hosted fine art, lectures with renown historians and theologians, and a musical performance that featured over thirty musicians from top orchestras in the nation.

The new certificate aims to help students appreciate and articulate the mutual enrichment of theology and arts and to create opportunities for relating the arts to local churches and communities.

Joelle Hathaway was among 19 graduate students from five schools at Duke who received Graduate Student Training Enhancement Grants last spring for training beyond their core disciplines. Read an update on the Interdisciplinary Studies blog.

Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts is partnering with the Nasher Museum of Art and Duke Chapel to host an exhibition of Miserere et Guerre, a series of 58 intaglio prints by French artist Georges Rouault (1871–1958).

DITA hosted "Call and Response: Two Days of Theology and the Arts," which included a poetry reading, musical performances, and a panel on visual art and the call to ministry.

DITA graduate students Joelle Hathaway and Stephanie Gehring Ladd are receipients of new grants.

If church leaders and artists have been estranged in western culture, then DITA alum David Taylor is helping to lead them into a more blissful union.

“Riven Tree” by artist Bruce Herman is based on the resurrection of Jesus and will hang in the York Room.

Herman will deliver a public lecture and invite community members to view his work on a commissioned painting for the Divinity School.

Herman will be at Duke March 1-10 and March 28-30.
