Is Catholic Social Teaching Still Relevant?
After years of activism by the likes of Monsignor Charles Owen Rice, is Catholic social teaching still relevant? Dr. Charles McCollester, director of the Pennsylvania Center for the Study of Labor Relations and professor at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), will address that topic during the second Monsignor Charles Owen Rice Endowed Lecture in Catholic Social Thought.
McCollester will discuss Charles Owen Rice and Catholic Social Teaching: Still Relevant in the Twenty-First Century? at the event. A professor of industrial and labor relations, his areas of expertise include comparative and international labor relations, collective bargaining, negotiations, and labor and community based economic development, among others.
