The de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture is pleased to announce its 21st annual Fall Conference, “I Have Called You by Name: Human Dignity in a Secular World,” November 11–13, 2021, in person at the University of Notre Dame.
What do we mean by “human dignity”? What are its foundations, contours, and entailments? Is a unified understanding of human dignity possible in a fragmented secular culture? Is a just society possible without it? This interdisciplinary, three-day event will engage the theme of human dignity from a variety of points of departure in more than 100 presentations, with keynotes by Mary Ann Glendon (Harvard Law School), Alasdair MacIntyre (de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture), Jacqueline Rivers (Harvard University), Elizabeth Schiltz (University of St. Thomas), and many others.
Registration and detailed information available on the fall conference webpage.
