THEO 085 - Francis,Cath Soc Tht & Pub Lif
Pope Francis, Catholic Social Thought and U.S. Public Life: Principles, Policies, and Politics is a seminar of less than 20 students that will analyze the principal themes of Catholic social thought in the context of Pope Francis’ leadership and priorities. The seminar will introduce these themes and then explore their application to key issues in American public life such as poverty and economic justice, human life and dignity, migration, religious freedom, war and peace, and environmental issues. We'll also examine the role of faith in U.S. political life. The seminar will center around discussion among participants, and will be based on readings and other materials that can help us understand the influence of Catholic social thought and Pope Francis on U.S. public life. The seminar is taught by one of the co-directors of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life: John Carr (fall semesters) or Kim Daniels (spring semesters).
