Dr. Charles C. Camosy
The Catholic Studies Program along with the Department of Religion proudly present, "Can a Catholic Critique of "Throwaway Culture" Pull Politics From The Brink?", on October 8, 2019 at 3 p.m. in the Beck Rooms AB, Walsh Library.
About the Lecture:
There is lots of talk about a polarized United States political culture these days, especially as we head into what promises to be a toxic 2020 election cycle. But the actual numbers tell a different story: two of every three Americans constitute an exhausted majority who reject right/left polarization and are open to alternative viewpoints. Especially at this time of realignment, we have been given a unique moment to put aside the frothy, angsty political debates and think harder about our deepest values.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Charles C. Camosy, Associate Professor of Theological and Social Ethics at Fordham University, will present a lecture about a Consistent Life Ethic that embraces Pope Francis' challenge to resist throwaway culture and has the capacity to unite people who for the last several decades imagined themselves in a polarized war.
The event is free and open to the public. This is an ACE Event.
