Event Details

Stephen Scharper, Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology, U of T Mississauga and School of the Environment, will present the 2016 Royackers Lecture, "Let Us Sing as We Go" speaking on Pope Francis, Laudato Si', and the Quest for an Integral Ecology.

Pope Francis's melding of poverty and ecological integrity in his encyclical Laudato Si' represents a critical emergence in Catholic social teaching. Yet, given his international pastoral presence and palpable humility, his search for an "integral ecology" represents something deeper and potentially more far-reaching. The larger implications of this quest will be explored in this presentation, including its impact on international political and moral approaches to climate change.

A reception will follow the lecture.
