As much as we would like not to have to ask for anything at all, we do have to deal with some expenses. Therefore, we asking for a $20 contribution toward the cost of the food and libations offered on Friday and Saturday nights, if you attend these events. This keeps costs low enough that we’re one of the cheapest conferences you’ll find, while still ensuring that we can get to know one another while having plenty of food and fun. We will be collecting that money beginning first thing on Friday, so please have it ready.
Directions to all off campus events are forthcoming…

A Graduate Student Conference
Inspired by the Thought of Bernard J.F. Lonergan, S.J.
WHEN: Friday, September 16 to Saturday, September 17, 2011
WHERE: Raynor Library Conference Center, Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
WHAT: Presentations span both philosophy and theology and place Lonergan’s thought in dialogue with a variety of topics and thinkers, such as human rights, forensic science, liturgical minimalism, phenomenology, Christ’s experience of pain, intellectual and psychological conversion, Balthasar, Aquinas, Sontag, and Rothko. Speakers include graduate students not only from Marquette but also from Boston College, Loyola Marymount University, University of Toronto, University of St. Thomas (Houston), and Loyola University Chicago. (Exact schedule with presenter names and presentation titles and times to follow.)
In addition, on the second day of the conference there will be a panel discussion on “Lonergan as a Reader of Aquinas,” and admission is free. See the attached flyer for details on the panel.
Those who are interested can contact Jeremy Blackwood (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Matt Peters (email@example.com) for more information.
Fr. Bernard Lonergan, S.J., was a Canadian Jesuit Priest born in Buckingham, Quebec. He was a philosopher-theologian, an economist, and a student of methodology. He taught at Loyola College (Montreal) (now part of Concordia University), Regis College (Toronto), the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, Harvard University, and Boston College.
He is the author of Insight: A Study of Human Understanding (1957) and Method in Theology (1972). In Insight he worked out what he called a Generalized Empirical Method, and in Method in Theology he showed how this method elucidated the structure and process of work in theology.
“Lonergan is considered by many intellectuals to be the finest philosophic thinker of the twentieth century.”~Time Magazine
