Virtual Research Seminar: What's New in the New Encyclical "Fratelli Tutti"?

Friday, October 23, 2020 - 9:00am to Saturday, October 24, 2020 - 9:45am

On October 4, 2020, Pope Francis published a new social encyclical "Fratelli Tutti" on the way we should live together on our planet. The encyclical challenges our economic and political systems and calls for a new culture of solidarity.

In an informal seminar we want to explore aspects of the text which are part of our ever-developing Catholic Social Tradition. Dan Graff, Grace Munene, Margie Pfeil, Clemens Sedmak will offer brief reflections and then open the floor for comments and thoughts. We will address questions like the following: What is "new" about the new encyclical? How does the text talk about the pandemic? What are the urgent challenges identified by Pope Francis? What response does he offer? What do his exhortations mean for the University of Notre Dame, for our teaching and learning, and for the Center for Social Concerns? 

Presenters
Dan Graff, Ph.D., Director, Higgins Labor Program; Faculty Joint Appointment, History 
Grace Munene, MSC, Assistant Director, International Summer Service Learning Program 
Margie Pfeil, Ph.D., Faculty Joint Appointment, Theology

Clemens Sedmak, Ph.D., Catholic Social Tradition Advisor; Interim Director and Professor of Social Ethics, Nanovic Institute for European Studies at the Keough School of Global Affairs
