The leading center for scholarly reflection within the Catholic moral and intellectual tradition
Fifteen junior faculty and graduate students from international institutions are gathering at the University of Notre Dame May 23-25 for an intensive seminar on "Economics and Catholic Social Thought." The ND Center for Ethics and Culture is cosponsoring the seminar in collaboration with the Lumen Christi Institute and the Catholic Research Economists Discussion Organization.
The Center for Ethics and Culture invites scholars and artists to submit proposals for our Fall Conference, entitled "You Are Beauty: Exploring the Catholic Imagination." The 17th Annual Fall Conference will consider “aesthetic contemplation sublimated in faith” (“Letter to Artists,” Pope St. John Paul II), exploring the relationship between the imagination, beauty, truth, and religion in a variety of contexts, particularly the arts, philosophy, theology, political theory, and the sciences. The conference will take place at the University of Notre Dame, November 10 - 12, 2016.
Richard Doerflinger, a Public Policy Fellow of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture, retired at the end of April after 36 years as the associate director for pro-life activities and policy for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). In recognition of his role as a lifelong champion in defense of human life, Doerflinger was honored in 2011 with the first ever Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal, and as a Public Policy Felllow he continues to serve as an expert on bioethical issues.
In collaboration with the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization and in honor of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, this two-day colloquium will discuss questions specifically related to the topic of disability and the ways in which mercy, properly understood, requires friendship, communion, and a shared life with those who have disabilities.
