2017 World Catholicism Research Poster Presentation

On April 28, 2017, select undergraduates from Catholic Studies courses will participate in an interactive poster session, presenting their research on the lingering repercussions of the Reformation in the global South—and efforts there to bridge ecclesial divides—this year's World Catholicism Week conference topic: "Gathered in My Name: Ecumenism in the World Church."

Three of our conference speakers will be among the audience, and after the students' presentations, each will offer their thoughts and comments, as respondents, on the students' research. Those speakers are
  • Teresa Okure, SHCJ (Sole representative of Catholic Africa—Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission—Port Harcourt, Nigeria)
  • Justin K. H. Tse (Visiting Assistant Professor, Asian American Studies—Northwestern University—Evanston, IL, USA)
  • Michael Cooper-White (President, Lutheran Theological Seminary—Gettysburg, PA)
The top three poster presentations will be awarded prizes of $200, $100, and $50, respectively. (The presenters will be those undergraduates whose research was evaluated by their professors as among the top in their courses. Following the presentation, the students are invited to join all of the speakers for the conference's opening dinner.)
