Center for Ethics and Cultures 19th Annual Fall Conference: Higher Powers

Location: McKenna Hall

What is the proper relationship between God, the human person, and the state? Inspired by the life and work of Nobel Prize-winning author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, on the occasion of his centenary, the Center for Ethics and Culture's annual Fall Conference will consider how every human pursuit can be oriented toward higher powers and reflect on the true measures of social progress, the role of morality in law and politics, and the dynamics of liberty, dignity, self-sacrifice, and the good in public life. 

Sessions include a lecture by Rev. John P. Wauck of Pontifical University of Santa Croce entitled, "Mightier than the Sword: The Power of St. Thomas More and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn," and panels featuring Elizabeth Lev of Pontifical University of the Angelicum on "The Art of Good Government: Ambrogio Lorenzetti in the Palazzo Pubblico of Siena," and Jennifer Donnelly on "Mistuned Chords of Memory: Display and Democracy in the Art Museum."
