MCE with the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture and the Catholic Research Economists Discussion Organization are organizing a Seminar about Economics and Catholic Social Thought. The Course will be from 22 to 27 of May
This seminar is designed as an introduction and immersion into Catholic social thought for graduate students and faculty in economics, finance, or related fields. Participants will cover foundational principles in Catholic social thought starting with the human person, dignity, freedom, subsidiarity, solidarity, and the common good, and moving toward applications of these principles to conceptual understandings and ethical considerations involving economic topics such as utility theory, firm and business ethics, wages, markets, globalization, poverty, and development. Participants will delve into social encyclicals, secondary sources, and relevant economics texts.
There will be twenty hours of class in addition to a full Roman experience. Classroom activities will be supplemented with opportunities for daily Mass, meetings with Church leadership, and visits to famous sights in Rome.
The seminar will take place in Rome, split between the University of Notre Dame’s Rome Global Gateway and the Pontificia Università della Santa Croce. Students will be provided with accommodations and meals, and a limited number of travel stipends are available on a need basis.
This seminar will be open to Ph.D. students and faculty in Economics, Finance and related fields.

Conference "The Heart of Work"
New Perspective of Christian Thought 500 years after the Reform
Rome, October 19-20 2017
The conference “The Heart of Work” will take place from October 19-20, 2017, at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome (please see the rationale of the conference: www.pusc.it/teo/conv2017).
The conference wishes to stimulate interdisciplinary reflection - historical, anthropological, sociological, ethical, economical and theological – on the meaning of professional work in the lives of men and women in today’s modern societies.
Our academic gathering coincides with two eventful anniversaries, which have profoundly influenced the development of the current mentality on work: the fifth centenary of the Reformation (1517), which has promoted a vision of work inspired by the Bible, and the first centenary of the Bolshevik Revolution, which diffused a materialistic vision of work.
