Nonviolence: Intersectional Praxis for Covid-19 and Systemic Racism  

Eli McCarthy, professor of Justice and Peace Studies at Georgetown University and the Director of DC Peace Team, leads a training workshop on Nonviolent Communication on Friday, February 14.

Dr. Eli S. McCarthy.

Eli S. McCarthy, Ph.D. will present "Nonviolence: Intersectional Praxis for Covid-19 and Systemic Racism," online as the Twenty-Seventh Annual Monsignor John M. Oesterreicher Memorial Lecture on Thursday, October 22, at 7:00 p.m.

The lecture is free and open to the public, but you must register in advance for this meeting on Zoom.

About the Lecture:
Nonviolent peacemaking is distinct from the pacifism of some good people of past generations because it takes initiatives to promote the justice that should lead to a sustainable peace. Dr. McCarthy has been involved in promoting the nonviolent practices of the Pax Christi organization on several Catholic University campuses, including Seton Hall in 2019. This lecture sets his work in the context of urgent issues of this time and is sponsored by the Institute of Judaeo-Christian Studies.

About the Speaker:
Dr. Eli McCarthy earned his Ph.D. at the Graduate Theological Union, Berkley, CA. He is an Adjunct Lecturer in the Program on Justice and Peace at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. where he teaches courses in Justice and Peace Studies and related areas. Dr. McCarthy’s publications include Becoming Nonviolent Peacemakers: A Virtue Ethic for Catholic Social Teaching and U.S. Policy (Eugene, OR: Wipf and Stock, 2012) and Just Peace Ethic Primer: Building Sustainable Peace and Breaking Cycles of Violence (Georgetown University Press, 2020). His essay "Good Practices of Unarmed Civilian Protection: Case Study in Israel and Palestine” is found in Wielding Nonviolence in the Midst of Violence, edited by E. Furnari (Books on Demand, 2016).

About the Institute of Judaeo-Christian Studies:
The Institute of Judaeo-Christian Studies (IJCS) promotes peace building among people of all faiths through educational programs and interreligious exchanges and public forums. Founded in 1953 at Seton Hall University by Monsignor John M. Oesterreicher, IJCS developed the Master’s Program in 1975. Along with local students, people from 26 countries across five continents have joined us in helping to unite and empower a new, globally diverse generation of scholars, theologians and educators who are dedicated to exploring and promoting their shared values, practices, traditions and peaceful pursuits.
