Mathematics for Human Flourishing: A Conversation on Beauty, Justice, & Love

Oct 29, 2020 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Would we see it---and ourselves---differently? Join mathematician Francis Su in conversation with Mia Chung-Yee as they discuss the broader implications of his new…

Dec 4, 2020 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST

Dante is one of the greatest poets in the West, and he is also a superb Thomist.

In this short course, we will consider the nature and structure of Dante’s Inferno, and then we will look in detail at his representation and exposition of the sins of opportunism, lust, gluttony, avarice, wrath,…

Apr 8, 2021 at 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

After Whiteness: The Search for Belonging

Jun 22, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

We come to the academy to be shaped into critical thinkers, independent minds, but we are often unaware of the spiritual and racial formation these models of the “educated man” carry. In his recent book, After Whiteness, theologian Willie Jennings untangles our pedagogies which are tied to the image of the white slave-master, drawing from his many years of experience in higher-ed, especially as an academic dean. And in her work in higher-ed in the sphere of student life and…
