The de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture at the University of Notre Dame is co-hosting a pair of colloquia in Paris to take place May 27-29 at the Law School of the Université Paris Descartes-Sorbonne Paris Cité and the Centre d’études du Saulchoir. The conferences are part of an ongoing research collaboration on politics and Christianity, under the theme of “The Two Cities,” sponsored by the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture, the Université Paris Descartes-Sorbonne Paris Cité and the Centre d’études du Saulchoir.
“We are grateful for our many partners in Europe who have helped us in our efforts to expand the global reach and impact of the de Nicola Center over the past few years,” said de Nicola Center director Carter Snead. “This initiative in France, like our longstanding collaboration with colleagues in Rome, Florence and Milan, provides a unique forum for genuinely interdisciplinary scholarly dialogue and exchange for the world’s leading thinkers in the Catholic tradition, as well as from many other perspectives and backgrounds.”
“Now in its third year, this project gathers researchers from across the United States and Europe to discuss important aspects of the relationship of Christianity and the Western political, cultural, theological and intellectual tradition,” said Patrick J. Deneen, professor of political science and the David A. Potenziani Memorial College Chair at the University of Notre Dame. “The de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture has established a profound colloquy that brings together Europe and America’s most esteemed thinkers, as well as rising scholars, to explore Christian contributions to modern life.”
