Registration – Dublin International Dialogues

The Notre Dame Dublin Global Gateway and the Notre Dame-Newman Centre for Faith and Reason are launching a series of international dialogues exploring Saint John Henry Cardinal Newman’s seminal work, The Idea of a University, and its contemporary relevance to educational challenges faced today in the teeth of the Covid crisis. The “Thinking with Newman: Educating with Intention Today” series coincides with the one year anniversary of Saint John Henry Newman’s canonization, offering a suitable moment to reflect on the inspiration we can take from his writings.

The series is hosted by our expert Notre Dame faculty and Directors of the Gateway and Newman Centre in Dublin, Ireland. Over three weekly live sessions, Rev. Gary Chamberland, C.S.C., and Professor Kevin Whelan will lead participants as they dive into questions such as:

  • Why is Newman’s work still relevant today?
  • What is the value of a University education?
  • What is the enduring legacy of Newman’s education insights?
  • What are the challenges posed by living out Newman’s ideals today in our conflicted and coronavirus-afflicted world?
  • “Thinking with Newman” is open to all and offers participants a space to explore the existential questions, through the lens of Newman’s educational philosophy, that Universities are faced with today.  This series is exclusively offered through ThinkND, Notre Dame’s open online learning community.
