Center for Religious Wisdom and World Affairs partners with Fordham University Press to address homelessness

The Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs in the School of Theology and Ministry is partnering with Fordham University Press to publish the work by Center Scholars on the role of religion in understanding and responding to homelessness. 

The forthcoming publication, which will be edited by Center Director Manuel Mejido (right), explores how faith-based organizations and other community partners can more effectively and meaningfully address homelessness and the affordable housing crisis, as well as how the wisdom of different religious traditions can be leveraged to reimagine solutions to this intractable social problem. 

The seventh oldest university press in the country and the nation’s oldest Catholic university press, Fordham University Press produces intellectually penetrating studies in the humanities and the social sciences, with a particular emphasis on creatively interdisciplinary work and a deep commitment to critically engaged scholarship.
