Renowned ethicist Lisa Sowle Cahill is the J. Donald Monan Professor at Boston College. In the classroom, in lectures, in public commentary, and in essays and books, she draws on the principles of Christian ethics, Catholic social teaching, and feminist theology as she addresses health and medical issues of global concern; cloning and stem cell research; globalization; and violence, war, and peace. Sowle is also an author of many books and won the 2006 First Place Award for Outstanding Theology Books from the Catholic Press Association for her book entitled Theological Bioethics: Participation, Justice and Change (2005).

This year’s program, “Integrating Faith and Science: Dilemmas, Debates, and Decisions,” celebrates the opening of the Integrated Center for Math and Science in Peckham Hall, where Nazareth students and faculty plumb the secrets of the natural world, and, in a special way, honors the memory of Nazareth Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies William H. Shannon who died on April 29, 2012. Fr. Shannon was instrumental in promoting conversation on science and morality at the college and in the community.  Our distinguished speakers—all well versed in both science and religion, particularly the Catholic tradition—will help us continue the conversation.
