“In the Lógos of Love”: An Upcoming Conference on Catholic Intellectual Life
We recently heard about a conference sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies and the University of Dayton which will be held September 20 to 22, 2013. The conference will be held at the University of Dayton (a LFP network school) and will explore the “Promise and Predicament of Catholic Intellectual Life Today.”
The line up of speakers is quite amazing. They include Richard Rodriguez, essayist and author of Hunger of Memory; Nancy Dallavalle, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Religious Studies, Fairfield University; Paul J. Griffiths, Warren Professor of Catholic Theology, Duke Divinity School; Leslie Woodcock Tentler, Professor of History, The Catholic University of America; Miguel H. Diaz, University Professor of Faith and Culture, University of Dayton. U.S. Ambassador (Ret.) to the Holy See; Diane Winston, Knight Chair in Media and Religion, Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, University of Southern California; Scott Appleby, Professor of History and John M. Regan Jr. Director of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame; Vincent J. Miller, Gudorf Chair in Catholic Theology and Culture, University of Dayton.
