Final Reminder: Conference and Celebration in Honor of Margaret Farley, April 15 - 16.
The life and work of Margaret Farley will be celebrated at YDS on April 15-16, 2005 during a conference entitled Just Love: Feminism, Theology and Ethics in a Global Context.
The occasion for this two-day event is the creation of the Margaret Farley Chair in Christian Social Ethics and a Festschrift publication in her honor of her birthday, which will be celebrated at the Reception and Festival Evensong on Friday, April 15th.
The conference, which will meet on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, will offer all an opportunity to reflect together on several acute issues of our time and the contribution that Professor Farley's work has made to them. Brief presentations by four panels will raise the questions for discussion. Panel topics and chairs of the four panels are: Method: Feminism, Theology and Ethics, Francine Cardman, Weston Jesuit School of Theology; Just Sex and the Churches, Jean Porter, University of Notre Dame; Compassionate Respect: A Larger Ethic for Health Care, Nancy Angoff, Yale University School of Medicine; Justice and Love for a World in Crisis: HIV/AIDS and Africa, James Keenan, Weston Jesuit School of Theology.
