2019 lecture:

Resisting Throwaway Culture: How a consistent life ethic can unite a fractured people

DATE: Wed, Oct. 16, 2019

TIME: 7pm

WHERE: Campion Auditorium 3737 Wascana Parkway

WHO: Dr. Charles CamosyAssociate Professor, Theological and Social EthicsFordham University


Based on his book of the same name, Dr. Camsoy reflects on this time of realignment when we have been given a unique moment to put aside the frothy, angsty political debates and think harder about our deepest values. This lecture will be an opportunity to dialogue about what kinds of values should serve as the foundation for a new political culture.


A theme running throughout Dr. Camosy’s work is the fostering of intellectual solidarity between political and ethical approaches which find conversation difficult. A Roman Catholic anthropology which refuses to choose to between individually- and communally-construed understandings of personal dignity is particularly important in this regard. He is thrilled to be a part of the international working group Contending Modernities which is spending four years exploring how Catholicism, Islam and Secular Liberalism can productively interact in the public sphere with regard to difficult ethical issues related to science and bioethics.
