    Paluse Lecture Series Features Duquesne Research Grant Recipients

    Three Duquesne University faculty members will present research papers at Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Catholic Social Thought, the third annual Paluse Lecture Series, on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 3 p.m. in the Africa Room of the Union.

    The following faculty, who received Paluse Research Grants in May 2010, have integrated the principles of Catholic social thought into their respective academic disciplines and will present at the series:

    • Dr. Daniel Lieberfeld, Center for Social and Public Policy, Reconciliation Oriented Leadership: The Case of Chilean President Michelle Bachelet
    • Dr. Jaime Phillip Muñoz, Department of Occupational Therapy, What Helps Me Engage and What Gets in the Way: Using Photovoice to Understand and Address Barriers to Social Participation
    • Dr. Jotham Parsons, Department of History, Poverty, Class and Spirituality in the Century of Saints.

    The presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a reception.

    Funded by an endowment from the late Fr. Richard V. Paluse, the annual research grants and lecture series advance the University’s commitment to issues of importance for Catholic and Spiritan identity. Up to four $5,000 awards are given annually to University faculty.
