The Religious Ethics Colloquium

Faculty and doctoral students in Religious Ethics gather three times a semester to discuss work in progress. A brief (15-page) paper by a student or faculty member is distributed in advance to the group, and the colloquium meets for an hour-long discussion followed by a social. Doctoral students in Religious Ethics are required to participate in the Colloquium and to present to the group at least once during the third year of residency; multiple presentations are anticipated and encouraged over a student’s course of study. The Colloquium offers a regular occasion for all doctoral students and faculty in the field of Religious Ethics to come together for scholarly work. It has proved a valuable asset of our doctoral program for both students and professors.
