Two promising online resources for CTSA members

09/03/2020 3:46 PM | Thomas J Massaro SJ

CTSA members, especially those interested in topics related to religion and ethics in contemporary society, may enjoy these two resources (Full disclosure: I never knew about either one until recent requests to contribute from the curators of each):

1) The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University hosts an online forum for the exchange of opinions on matters of public import. One of the Berkley Center's recent topics (treated by an interreligious array of nearly a dozen well-informed writers, a few of them CTSA members) involves “Economic Justice and Universal Basic Income: Ethical and Religious Perspectives.” You don't need to be a member of the "Yang Gang" to appreciate the opinions expressed here. (That is a reference to recent Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang).

2) The Canopy Forum on the Interactions of Law and Religion is a digital project of the Center for Law and Religion at Emory Law School. Its stated goal is “to provide sophisticated yet accessible content. . . on issues that lie at the intersection of law, religion, and society. . . in an informed, nuanced, and productive way.” Based on what I have seen on the website so far, these lofty goals are routinely achieved--again, in an interreligious mode.

Happy reading!  Thomas Massaro, S.J. (Fordham University)

    Thank you Tom, for sharing these resources with us!

    I am very interested in the traction that the universal basic income discussion has gained recently. I also appreciate our members who are focusing their attention on this issue, including Kate Ward at Marquette. Are others also looking at this issue right now?
