CEIE Scholars were convened (2020-2022) over a virtual platform to study the pain of an unfolding pandemic in the world. Theologians, clinical psychologists, sociologists, historians and religious scholars discussed determined the injury of “a pandemic age” that is not identical with Covid-19. Additional societal breakdowns and a rise in existential incoherence is taking place in the world.
An edited volume will be released in the coming academic year. In addition, visit the Center’s Religica Theolab for a view of the new multi-media resource being created, for use in your community.
Scholars were convened (2016-2019) alongside those who experienced homelessness. Theologians, sociologists, historians, and local practitioners met, and a major study led to a published text: Land of Stark Contrasts: Faith-Based Responses to Homelessness in the United States (Fordham Jesuit University Press). Land of Stark Contrasts is edited by Manuel Mejido Costoya. Order it today.
This inter-disciplinary volume is a collection of essays, each of which explores the role of religion in understanding and responding to homelessness and housing insecurity in the United States.
