A leading center of research & reflection on the Church in the global South, the Center for World Catholicism & Intercultural Theology (CWCIT) seeks to be at the forefront of the discussion about the relationship between globalization and the Catholic Church's future as a truly worldwide Church.
Housed in the Department of Catholic Studies
, CWCIT focuses on the global nature of Catholic Christianity, especially but not exclusively in the global South (Asia, Africa and Latin America). Questions of peacemaking and social reconciliation inform our work and academic research, and to that end, each year we host several visiting theological scholars from the global South. In addition to being mutually beneficial and enriching, this intercultural intercambio
, like the work of CWCIT itself, promotes tolerance and genuine bonds of solidarity between people whose particular cultural histories are in conflict.
