US Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Conference in Canada - Register for Goodness, Truth and Beauty ... and the Encounter With Evil

How can people pursue goodness, truth, and beauty, even as they encounter evil? The Catholic intellectual tradition offers responses to this question in theology, philosophy, literature, history, law, the arts, the sciences, education and the Church’s pastoral practice. What forms does evil take today in the work of the Church and in the use of civil authority; in culture, economics, and politics; and among adherents of different religions and worldviews? What can people learn from the Catholic intellectual tradition to spur the pursuit of goodness, truth, and beauty not only in spite of, but even through the encounter with evil?

Concurrent Sessions Groups

At the upcoming convention in Montreal, September 27-29, 2019, Concurrent Sessions in various academic specialties will again be offered. Those wishing to present a paper are asked to submit it before June 15, 2019 to the group leader. He or she will then choose the two or three papers best suited for discussion. All are welcome to submit papers but submissions from younger scholars are preferred. The papers chosen for discussion will be posted on the FCS website by September 1, 2019. FCS members who intend to participate in a Concurrent Session are invited to prelect the full papers; the papers will be available to members of the FCS intending to attend the conference. At the meeting the presenters will deliver a 10 minute summary of their papers before the discussion is opened to the participants. The group leaders and their e-mail addresses are listed below. Please contact them if you wish to submit a paper or, later on, if you wish to read the papers in your field of interest.
