Centenary College Announces
Convocations for September and October
SHREVEPORT, LA — The Centenary Convocations Committee has announced
scheduled convocations for September and October. All are open to the
Centenary and Shreveport-Bossier communities. The convocations are:
A Sense of Place with artist Barbara Earl Thomas
Thursday, Sept. 8
Anderson Auditorium, Hurley School of Music
Artist Barbara Earl Thomas will discuss her artistic influences and her
exhibit The Big Fish: The Art of Barbara Earl Thomas, which is
now on display at Meadows Museum of Art. Ms. Thomas will speak on how
one's identity and understanding of the world is shaped by his or her

birth, choice and other circumstances.
A Living Constitution? with Dr. Rodney Grunes
Thursday, Sept. 15
Marjorie Lyons Playhouse
Chief Justice John Marshall said that the United States Constitution was
intended to endure for ages to come. Some contemporary scholars and political
leaders argue that the Constitution should be subject to a stricter construction,
adhering closely to the wording of the text and the original intent of
its framers. As the "supreme law of the land," how the Constitution
is interpreted is important to all citizens, for it is the basis of Supreme
Court decisions involving every important issue, including privacy, censorship,
women's rights, gay marriage and affirmative action.
