Topics

  • Utilizing the Vocation of the Business Leader (Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace [PCJP], 2012) document, we encourage papers to address the relationship of poverty and prosperity with three basic goods of business: good goods, good work, and good wealth.
  • Theological and philosophical inquiries into the Catholic social tradition as well as other religious and philosophical traditions addressing poverty, prosperity and business.
  • Pedagogical/Institutional: While we hope all the papers will have pedagogical implications for higher education, we are also looking for explicit mission-driven curricular materials, processes, models and ideas that examine poverty, prosperity and business.
Papers that are accepted and presented at the conference will be open to a referee process for a special issue in the Journal of Catholic Social Thought.
