The public is invited to the fourth annual R. Wayne Perkins lecture series
 
Mary Stewart Adams
Star lore, historian, storyteller, author, and global advocate for starry skies
 
Mary Stewart Adams is a star lore historian, working as global advocate for starry skies. She lectures throughout the world using a humanities-based approach to understanding the celestial world around us and the cultural influence of astronomy through the ages. She has been immersed in the history of star knowledge for over 30 years, and in this capacity she writes and speaks extensively about our relationship to the night sky and why it matters that we are losing direct access to the natural dark.
 
Mary led the team that established the 9th international dark sky park in the world in 2011. As a result of her work, the State of Michigan is now protecting the night sky over an additional 35,000 acres. She has received numerous honors for her pioneering work, traveling extensively and teaching a humanities-based approach to understanding the night sky. Adams has been honored twice as Dark Sky Advocate of the Year (2006 & 2012), Environmentalist of the Year (NMEAC 2012), and Dark Sky Defender (IDA2012).
 
Adams led her park to several prestigious awards, including the Pure Michigan “Pure Award” for 2017, and the first-ever awarded International Dark Sky Park of the Year Award, also for 2017. You can find Adams’ work at www.storytellersnightsky.com, on social media platforms, and on Interlochen Public Radio, where every Monday morning you can learn about a story in the sky on her radio segment “The Storyteller’s Night Sky.”

The R. Wayne Perkins Lecture Series
 
The annual R. Wayne Perkins Lectures, sponsored by the Office of Religious Life of the University of Evansville, bring together religion scholars, theologians, and church leaders to explore biblical and theological questions relevant to our common life together. The lectures are intended to be public in nature, engage a broad gathering of world views, and help inform the complexities of theological understanding within contemporary life.
 
The Perkins Lectures are made possible by the generosity of private donors and the Lilly Endowment Inc., and are designed to generate and foster sustained theological reflection among University of Evansville students and alumni, clergy, and the larger community.
