FiresideND, Part 6: Preservation, Resilience, and Sustainability in our Architecture
How does Notre Dame’s School of Architecture address the issues of climate change confronting our world, using the lens of the built environment? Though we live in a society and a culture that may often be focused on the new, we can respect the legacy of which we are stewards, and understand the value of that legacy, when we realize that the “greenest” building is the one that is already built. Hear how the University of Notre Dame is investing in our future with the Michael Christopher Duda Center for Preservation, Resilience, and Sustainability – the only center of its kind in the world. Join Stephen Hartley, associate professor of the practice at the School of Architecture, in conversation with Carl Elefante, FAIA, FAPT, former president of the American Institute of Architects and inaugural senior research associate of the Duda Center, and a leading expert in the convergence of historic preservation and sustainability worldwide.Thanks for listening!

Mental Health and the Catholic Church, Part 3: The Church, The Healing Community
In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, the Vatican Dicastery for Integral Human Development called upon the Church to live out its call as a healing community. Today, when one in five Americans lives with mental illness, and one in three report serious loneliness, what does it mean for the Church to be a healing community?Sponsored by the Fiat Program on Faith and Mental Health, this panel considers how the Church can better accompany persons and families living with the experience of mental illness. Drawing from the wisdom of theology, neuroscience, and the practice of pastoral care, our panelists discuss how priests, lay ministers, and all people can strengthen a culture of belonging that both reflects and participates in our sacramental communion within the Body of Christ. Moderated by Beth Hlabse ’11, M.S., LMHCA, program director of the Fiat Program on Faith and Mental Health at the McGrath Institute for Church Life.Thanks for listening!

Episode Topic: Shakespeare in Prisons Join us as we launch Shakespeare and Possibility, a series of conversations exploring how Shakespeare at Notre Dame is redefining what it means to produce Shakespeare’s works onstage and in the community in the 21st century. Discover how our work, consonant with the mission of Our Lady’s University, strives to serve the common good in surprising ways for an ever-changing world. Our first series offering “Shakespeare in Prisons” details the creation of the Shakespeare in Prisons Network founded at Notre Dame in 2013. This panel features the co-founders of the network; Peter Holland, McMeel Family Chair in Shakespeare Studies at Notre Dame, Curt Tofteland, Founding Director of Shakespeare Behind Bars, and Scott Jackson, Mary Irene Ryan Executive Artistic Director, Shakespeare at Notre Dame, who reflect on the early conversations that led to the first international Shakespeare in Prisons Conference in November 2013, where prison theater practitioners and scholars together discussed the impact of Shakespeare in prisons programs on systems-impacted individuals. From those humble beginnings the Shakespeare in Prisons Network has produced four conferences and created a network that today comprises more than 350 individuals and organizations from 17 nations on six continents. The growth of this movement is a testament to the power of Shakespeare’s works in carceral settings and beyond.Featured Speakers:Jennifer Birkett ’23 PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow with Shakespeare, University of Notre DameScott Jackson, Mary Irene Ryan Family Executive Artistic Director of Shakespeare, University of Notre DamePeter Holland, McMeel Family Chair in Shakespeare Studies, University of Notre Dame Curt Tofteland, Founder of the Shakespeare Behind Bars (SBB) programRead this episode's recap over on the University of Notre Dame's open online learning community platform, ThinkND: go.nd.edu/8a4495.This podcast is a part of the ThinkND Series titled Shakespeare and Possibility.Thanks for listening!

Ethics at Work Podcast, Part 6: Economy, Community, and Moral Theology

Ethics at Work Podcast, Part 6: Economy, Community, and Moral Theology
Episode Topic: Economy, Community, and Moral TheologyToday the Ethics at Work Crew chats with Fr. Gilbrian Stoy, C.S.C. '13, '19 MDiv. Fr. Gil has a variety of interests: economy, technology, ecology, and communion theology. Interestingly, Fr. Gil tells us that communion and community should be at the forefront of the way we think about economy.In today’s episode, we set the scene for understanding community through the lens of The Road by Cormac McCarthy to begin to unpack how economy involves relationships and meaning. This book gives us an image of communion, which structures everything about the Christian faith. Fr. Gil views the economy as a means for relationships. He pushes us to see each other at the ends of economic exchange and invites us to remember our relationships and human dignity in these exchanges. Looking at the messy human relationships across economic communities, Fr. Gil highlights how technology obscures the relationships that drive the economy. He reminds us that the common good can only be achieved in the collective, so setting up communities of virtue require relationships and common deliberation. Justice starts with an internal disposition of charity toward the other met by systems that enable the common deliberation. Just technologies encourage us to see each other more clearly and to act with charity towards each other.We invite you to consider with us the social concerns at the heart of economic exchange and to consider the people inside and across our economic endeavors.Featured Speakers:Paul Blaschko, Ph.D., assistant teaching professor at the University of Notre DameMegan Levis, Ph.D., assistant professor of the practice with Notre Dame’s Center for Social Concerns and with the College of EngineeringWalter Scheirer, Ph.D., the Dennis O.
