Native American Perspectives on Human Dignity
Thursday, April 7
12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET (US)
1030 Jenkins Nanovic Halls | Zoom Webinar
Integral human development is a holistic model of human flourishing articulated in Catholic social teaching and resonant in multiple religious, humanistic, and philosophical traditions worldwide. Studying different traditions can shed new light on this cross-disciplinary approach to human dignity, which proposes solutions that consider the whole person.
What perspectives do Native American traditions bring to the notion of integral human development? How might such traditions help us understand human dignity? Given past injustices, how can we work together to build more inclusive societies that advance the flourishing of all people?
Join us to hear from a panel of Native American students, academics, and professionals, who will explore these important questions together.
Presented by the Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion and co-sponsored by the University of Notre Dame's Nanovic Institute for European Studies and Department of American Studies.
Stay tuned for future discussions exploring additional faith traditions.
