A lecture by Robin Lovin
at Nanjing University
was sponsored by the Institute for Sino-Christian Studies
in Hong Kong.
Robin Lovin, Senior Research Fellow at CTI, gave the first annual Lecture on Global Concerns, a new lecture series recently launched at the Center.
Dr. Lovin’s lecture, titled “Relocating the Moral Vocabulary of American Politics,” included within a sweeping history of the Western political tradition an analysis of the contemporary dissatisfaction with politics, a proposal for a recovery of an Aristotelian conception of politics, and an examination of the various social institutions in which this is taking place.
Qualified applicants in theology, religious studies, and related disciplines are invited to submit proposals through the CTI website by March 20, 2015.
Leaders for the Young Scholar Workshop include Peter Danchin, Professor of Law and Director of the International and Comparative Law Program at the University of Maryland School of Law, David Decosimo, Assistant Professor of Theology at Loyola University Maryland, and Robin Lovin, Director of Research at CTI.
