Twenty-Year Celebration of CES and of Alice Loyd
The Center for Ecozoic Studies held its first planning meeting early in December 1999, and officially began operation on January 1, 2000. We will hold a celebration of the work of the Center this December. We will also celebrate Alice Loyd and her ten years of work for the Center. Alice will continue to write for CES publications but will step down from her positions as Vice President, Director, and Publications Manager.
New Schedule for Next Ecozoic Journal . . . Still Time to Submit
We have re-scheduled the date of publication of our next journal on “The Living Legacy of Thomas Berry.” It will be published in early 2020 rather than late 2019. If you would like to submit for this issue (i) a story of how you have lived and will live his legacy or (ii) a comment on his legacy, you may submit at any time prior to the end of 2019. Submissions should generally not exceed 4-5 pages (2,500) words. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org as Word documents.
Georgetown University October Conference
Herman Greene attended the Conference on “Thomas Berry and ‘The Great Work’” held at Georgetown University on October 30-31, 2019. The event was co-sponsored by Georgetown University’s Office of the President, Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, and Catholic Studies Program with the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University. Dr. John Borelli, special assistant for Catholic identity and dialogue to President John J. DeGioia of Georgetown University and one of twenty students who earned his PhD degree under Thomas Berry’s direction, played a key role in organizing the event. This may have been the most significant conference yet held on the life and legacy of Thomas Berry. The schedule and speakers for the conference is available here.
