2021 World Catholicism Research Poster Presentation

Each year, undergraduates from DePaul’s Catholic Studies courses submit a research poster on that year’s World Catholicism Week topic/theme. The top 10-12 are selected by their professors to present their research posters in a public, interactive session before the conference itself kicks off. Three of our conference speakers always serve as respondents, speaking individually with the students about their research and then coming together to offer their comments on each student’s work in a “feedback session.”

This year, since the conference will take place on Zoom rather than in person, the students are submitting short videos explaining their research/posters on this year's topic:  "Rise Up and Walk: Catholicism and Health Care across the Globe." Their videos will be posted on our CWCIT YouTube channel for viewing during the week and weekend of the conference. They will also be shared with the following three speakers who are serving as this year’s respondents and who will share their comments with the students on their work during a one-hour Zoom feedback session on the morning of Friday, April 16, 2021:

  • Alexandre Martins (Marquette University—Milwaukee)
  • Samuel Orochi Orach, MD (Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau—Kampala)
  • Kochurani Abraham (Indian Christian Women's Movement for Kerala—Karnataka, India)
