The Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs is very pleased to announce that it will be partnering with Fordham University Press to publish the work by Center scholars on the role of religion in understanding and responding to homelessness.

Mejido-at-2017-symposiumHow can faith-based organizations and other community partners more effectively and meaningfully address homelessness and the affordable housing crisis? How can the wisdom of different religious traditions be leveraged to reimagine solutions to this intractable social problem? The forthcoming publication, which will be edited by Center Director Dr. Manuel Mejido, explores these questions and distinctively combines interdisciplinary curiosity, interreligious engagement and practical concerns about the role of religion in public life.

Fordham University Press – the seventh oldest university press in the country and the nation’s oldest Catholic university press – has an outstanding reputation for producing 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.

The Center is delighted to be collaborating with a university press that so closely aligns with Seattle University’s mission of empowering leaders for a more just and humane world, and the School of Theology and Ministry’s efforts to connect academic learning to real world issues.

Fordham University Press’s Editorial Director, Mr. Richard Morrison, will be in attendance at the Center’s April 2018 Symposium, when Center scholars will present their respective research projects.
