Law Professor Elizabeth Schiltz, co-founder of Catholic Legal Scholars and co-director of the Murphy Institute for Social Thought, along with students and other UST faculty, will lead the Telos Project open discussion today, Thursday, Feb. 23.
Sponsored by the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center, the semesterlong series seeks to bring a renewed focus to St. Thomas’ commitment to the pursuit of truth through the integration of knowledge across disciplines.
Meetings take place from noon to 1 p.m. in the O’Shaughnessy Room (108), O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center. Each week a professor from a different department gives a brief presentation on:
- His or her discipline.
- What attracted him or her to that field.
- Why the larger UST community should care.
Today's meeting will begin with a 15-minute introduction to Schiltz's discipline and area of expertise, followed by a discussion and conversation among students and faculty. All students are invited to participate in the dialogue today and every Thursday. Cookies and juice will be provided.
Schiltz received her B.A. in philosophy from Yale and her J.D. from Columbia Law School. She practiced both in Washington, D.C., and in the Twin Cities. Schiltz then taught at the Notre Dame Law School before finally returning to the Twin Cities, serving as a founding member of St. Thomas’ School of Law. She recently received her M.A. in Catholic Studies.
