Annual Law and Religion Roundtable

Location: Notre Dame Chicago

The Annual Law and Religion Roundtable is an informal, but organized subject-matter conference that brings together a mix of senior scholars and junior scholars in the field.

Panels include works in progress, early-state projects, and hot topics. Attendees are scholars from the legal field, and those in religion, history and other related areas.  One benefit of ALRR is that attendees get a real-time picture of what issues are coming to the foreground or fading to the background, and of changes in the center of gravity or consensus on law-and-religion issues.

Location: DeBartolo Classroom Building, University of Notre Dame

For years the Catholic intelligentsia has debated the causes of a dearth of Catholic literature, lamenting the end of the "golden age" of Catholic writing and the days of O'Connor, Percy, Merton, et. al. "Catholic literary culture today might best be described as a funeral for multiple corpses. This, for living Catholic writers, makes for a rather depressing set of circumstances to enter into," wrote Kaya Oakes in an essay for America Magazine in 2014.
