Conference: “At Home in the Space Between”

12:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Notre Dame Conference Center / McKenna Hall

The 2015 conference of The Space Between society, “At Home in the Space Between,” focuses on the concept of home during the period 1914-1945.

‘Home’ as a space invites discussions of interiority, belonging, and family. It also conjures alternate conceptions of haunting, anxiety, and alienation. From notions of the Great War’s home front to the interwar period’s ‘back to home and duty,’ politicized notions of home are especially rich during this period. The innovative design and lifestyle experimentation of this period also invite studies of a domestic modernity. The conference “At Home in the Space Between” presents papers from all disciplines that consider home in the broadest sense as both space and concept.…

Conference: “New Conversations in Religion and Science: What Difference Might Critical Realist Philosophy Make?”

3:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Notre Dame Conference Center / McKenna Hall

The Center for the Study of Religion and Society presents, “New Conversations in Religion and Science: What Difference Might Critical Realist Philosophy Make?”, an interdisciplinary conference hosted by Director Christian Smith, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Sociology.

How might conversations between science and religion be helped by the philosophy of critical realism? How can we examine things like “love,” “forgiveness,” “virtue,” and “divinity”—so crucial to many communities of faith—from scientific perspectives? What can communities of faith learn about the world from social scientists and philosophers—and vice versa? This conference brings together thinkers in religion, theology, and social science to explore how critical realism might help us address such questions with fresh, constructive answers.…

Regis Philbin Studio Theatre, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

August 4–30, 2015
Presented in Association with Shakespeare Napa Valley

Discovered in a treasure-filled parking lot in Leicester, England, an ancient manuscript proves to be the long-lost first play by the young glover’s apprentice from Stratford.
