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). The center seeks to create channels of collaboration and friendship among scholars from the North and South; 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 may be in conflict.
