Panel Discussion

The Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage will host a panel discussion on Loyola’s Water Tower Campus as part of its Catholicism and the Professional Life series. This series, which takes place each spring semester, seeks to connect faculty from across Loyola’s Professional Schools in conversation about the role of Catholicism in their disciplines today.

This year’s panel – Catholicism, Global Development, and the Professional Life – explores the intersection of Catholicism, global development, and the professions through a shared engagement with economist and writer Robert Calderisi’s recent book Earthly Mission: The Catholic Church and World Development (Yale UP, 2013). In this book, Calderisi explores “the tensions and paradoxes within the Catholic Church” when it comes to global development – complicity with genocide in Rwanda and dictatorship in Argentina on the one hand, and the defense of human rights in Brazil and El Salvador on the other.

In addition to Mr. Calderisi, six members of Loyola’s faculty will participate in our panel discussion: John Breen (School of Law), Patricia Felkins (School of Communication), Maria de Haymes (School of Social Work), Lee Hubbell (School of Education), Tassos Malliaris (School of Business), and Brian Schmisek (Institute of Pastoral Studies). Please join us in B what promises to be both a stimulating and timely conversation.
