“Catholic Social Teaching and Economic Globalization” with Francis Cardinal George, Catholic Archbishop of Chicago
Francis Cardinal George, Catholic Archbishop of Chicago, will speak on “Catholic Social Teaching and Economic Globalization” as the first speaker in the Religions and Public Life speaker series developed by the Religions and Public Life Initiative.
The speakers in the six-part series will be leaders who bridge the academic and faith communities. They will address the intersection of religion and social issues at the local and global levels.
George will speak on Catholic social teaching and economic globalization, a reflection on his world travels and experiences in the face of extreme poverty. In addition to his prominence among Catholic leadership, he holds doctoral degrees in both philosophy and theology. In his recent publication, God in Action, he argues that an engagement with religion is key to solving social and economic issues worldwide.
The Religions and Public Life Initiative is co-sponsored by Duke Divinity School, the Kenan Institute for Ethics, and Trinity College of Arts & Sciences.
