The 2017 Zahm Lecture in American Catholic Education will take place on Wednesday, September 6, at 7:15 p.m., in Buckley Center Auditorium. Christine Firer Hinze, PhD, Professor of Christian Ethics at Fordham University, will present “Against the Grain: Could Zeal for Solidarity be UP’s Gift for our Fractious Time?” The Zahm Lecture is free and open to all.
Drawing from the Holy Cross legacy in dialogue with modern Catholic social thought, Firer Hinze proposes that zeal for solidarity may offer a frame for education in faith sorely needed in today’s world. Firer Hinze is Director of the Curran Center for American Catholic Studies at Fordham University. Her teaching and research focus on foundational and applied ethical issues, with special emphasis on the dynamics of social transformation, Catholic social thought, and economic and work justice for women, families, and vulnerable groups. Her recent publications include Glass Ceilings and Dirt Floors: Women, Work, & the Global Economy (2015), and essays in Theological Studies, Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics, Proceedings of the Catholic Theological Association of America, and The Journal of Catholic Social Thought.
The Zahm Lecture in American Catholic Education was established in 1999 to honor Rev. John Zahm, C.S.C., an eminent Holy Cross priest and scientist of the late 19th and early 20th century. Zahm, superior of the Holy Cross in America when the University was founded in 1901, contributed counsel, money, and Holy Cross men to the nascent University. The Zahm lecture honors both his memory and the legacy of Holy Cross priests and brothers on The Bluff by addressing important issues surrounding American Catholic education.
