Metaphysical Aspects of Nature: Thomistic and Contemporary Perspectives

Location: Rome Global Gateway

February 25, 2017

The question of how we should understand “nature” is especially pressing in our time, and has applications to a diverse range of philosophical issues ranging from the explanation of human action, on the one hand, to the analysis of fundamental scientific concepts, such as “causation” and “laws”, on the other. To address such issues, Aristotelian-Thomistic ways of thinking are increasingly making a comeback in contemporary philosophical circles. This interest is, however, in its early stages and has been narrowly focused. This conference, organized jointly with the Pontifical University of Santa Croce, will bring together a team of top scholars (including historians of philosophy, metaphysicians, and philosophers of science) to expand the discussion, exploring what a Thomistically-informed philosophy of nature might look like in our own age.…

February 23, 2017

Theodore J. Cachey Jr.:  "La Commedia come 'mappamundi' " ("The Commedia as 'mappamundi'")

Se il tropo di definire la Commedia una sorta di mappamondo è un luogo comune, penso tuttavia che sia giusto dire che gli studi danteschi debbano ancora pienamente esplorare le implicazioni della nuova storia della cartografia per come potrebbe far luce su Dante come autore cartografico, e che ci siano significative scoperte ermeneutiche ancora da fare da questo punto di vista.…

CST Research Lab Seminal Conference

Location: Rome Global Gateway

January 13 -  14, 2017

Over the past 30 years the USCC and American Catholic institutions of higher education have developed mechanisms and institutes to teach the Catholic social tradition. Now is the time to create a formal way to measure the impact of the teaching and apply these best methods not only nationally, but become aware of what is replicable internationally. The proposal of the Center for Social Concerns is to create an international Catholic Social Tradition Research Lab for the University of Notre Dame to measure the application of CST throughout various global situations. Among our international partners for this CST Lab are the Council of Latin American Bishops (CELAM) with two Latin American universities, and five university partners in Europe: University of Salzburg, St. Hilda Chair at the University of Durham in the United Kingdom, Katholische Sozialwissenschaftliche Zentralstelle in Germany, University of Leuven in Belgium and King's College, London.…

The Primacy of Relationship and the Challenge of the Migrant

Location: Rome Global Gateway

January 11 - 13, 2017

The interdisciplinary colloquium called Per un nuovo umanesimo (“Towards a new humanism”) has met in Assisi (2012), Perugia (2014), and Rio de Janeiro (2015) to discuss a range of topics. The next meeting of this group will focus on the situation of the migrant from the perspective of multiple disciplinary perspectives: philosophy, theology, psychology, and anthropology. We are researching the presuppositions that undergird a humane treatment of the migrant in each of these disciplines. The principal hypothesis to be considered is whether the distinct disciplines allow for a convergence on the question of the primacy of relations. Moreover, is the relational view of the human person going to advance the treatment of the migrant in a more humane fashion? Each discipline can investigate distinct cases in order to establish its own conclusions, but the gathering will focus on the exchange of perspectives and the development of a more unified understanding of the problem.…

Joint Notre Dame/La Sapienza workshop on lie theory and cluster algebras

Location: Rome Global Gateway

October 17-21, 2016

This workshop aims to bring together leading researchers from the mathematical fields of Lie theory and cluster algebras for a joint research. Historically these fields have benefited greatly from their mutual interactions. Indeed, cluster algebras inform, and have their foundations in, an understanding of totally positive matrices and canonical bases coming from classical Lie theory, but they have grown beyond these foundations to explain a vast array of positivity phenomena across all of mathematics, including mysterious connections to mirror symmetry in algebraic geometry and string theory in mathematical physics. Their appearance in so many different branches of mathematics notwithstanding, cluster algebras exhibit their strongest interaction with Lie theory. The main aim of the proposed workshop is to push further this interplay between Lie theory and cluster algebras and to strengthen the bond between the Departments of Mathematics at Notre Dame and at La Sapienza. …

The Reign of King Peter I of Cyprus: Crusading and Diplomacy in the Late Medieval Eastern Mediterranean

Location: Rome Global Gateway

October 14-16, 2016

Cyprus Poster

This conference focuses on a fascinating and multifaceted figure in the history of the crusades and the late medieval Eastern Mediterranean, King Peter I Lusignan of Cyprus (1328-1369). King Peter's Alexandrian crusade of 1365 was a decisive moment in the history of the later crusades,which left its imprint on a wide range of European, Levantine, and Muslim literary sources. The 650th anniversary of this event provides the international scholarly community with an occasion to reconsider both the broader historical context of this event and King Peter I's reign in general. Interpretation of the medieval Eastern Mediterranean, a hub of cross-cultural interaction, requires interdisciplinary approaches involving documents and narratives written in Latin, French, Italian, Greek, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and other languages. With this multicultural perspective, this conference aims at contextualizing King Peter I and his deeds within the broader political, institutional, socio-economic, and intellectual developments of the Eastern Mediterranean in the fourteenth century.…

Global issues in intervention development in contexts of political violence

Location: Rome Global Gateway

July 15-23, 2016

Violence in Palestine has been on-going and severe for many years, and there is a wealth of basic research on the negative effects of such violence on developing children and their family systems. Yet, there have been extraordinarily few interventions that have been rigorously evaluated and even fewer that have been able to demonstrate any positive effects on mental health. We propose that two theoretical frameworks – social ecological theory and emotional security theory – may be successfully leveraged for better identifying possible avenues for successful mental health programs in setting with chronic violence (Cummings & Miller-Graff, 2015). The conference will seek to: discuss the application of these theoretical models as they apply to mental health program development in Palestine, consider conceptualizations of resilience and well-being in the face of chronic trauma, and identify relevant intersections between systems that may require unique approaches to treatment.…

IWSG 2016 - 8th International Workshop on Science Gateways

Location: Rome Global Gateway

8 - 10 June 

Science gateways are a community-specific set of tools, applications, and data collections that are integrated together via a web portal or a desktop application, providing access to resources and services of distributed computing infrastructures (DCIs). Science gateways offer the potential to open the utilisation of DCIs to wider audiences by providing a customised and easy to use user interface to access large computational and data resources. The complexity of the underlying infrastructure can be completely hidden from the end-users by a suitably tailored interface. As interest in science gateways has accelerated in the past few years, an increasing number of new user communities can utilise grid or cloud computing resources in a convenient manner.…

The Ontology of Platonic Forms

Location: Rome Global Gateway

June 3 - 4, 2016

Central to Plato's mature metaphysics is his Theory of Forms, in which he embraces a class of abstract, mind- and language-independent entities held to be immutable paradigms capable of serving as stable objects of knowledge, in contrast to the shifting and variegated material objects in the world of sense particulars. Already in antiquity, Plato's student Aristotle decried the theory as fanciful, unacceptably metaphorical, and irredemiably vague. Aristotle also contended that Plato was liable to a devastating objection to the ontology of Forms, namely that Forms are both universals and particulars. One core question of this conference: is Aristotle right? One corollary question: what precisely are Forms? Another: do Plato's surviving texts provide any conclusive answer? …

Sant'Egidio in Africa Presents "The DREAM Programme in Malawi"

The book is the result of a field study lasting three years (2009-2011) at the DREAM Centre in Blantyre, Malawi's second city, a place where today are treated thousands of people coming from all the areas of the town. This case study allowed me to observe a variety of elements connected with the health treatment proposed by DREAM which can produce important socio-economic outcomes. They are at the base root of an activation mechanism (Scitovsky, 2007) or a "propensity to be subjectively active in the development process"(Sen, 1999) at a micro and macro level.…
