L‘Arche Community Seminar

Social Concerns Seminar
CSC 33968
THEO 33968
PSY 23852

The L'Arche Seminar introduces students to the philosophy of Jean Vanier and to the model of service that his writings inspired. The class sessions leading up to the immersion will cover topics such as: Catholic Social Tradition and a framework for Solidarity; Spirituality lived in Community; Policy, Advocacy, and Discrimination; Vanier on Becoming Human. This is an invitation to think deeply about and observe directly a community (of people with and without disabilities) living together in the spirit of the beatitudes. Students will also witness how living in a L'Arche community has influenced the lives of the core members, assistants, and others. Students will likely have some opportunity to communicate with other organizations about their advocacy and policy work that relates to people with disabilities.

Class Dates: Fridays: 10:25–11:40 a.m., February 26–May 6, 2021
