Mathew Schmalz, Ph.D., associate professor of religious studies
As the world celebrates the election of Pope Francis, a Jesuit, you are invited to take part in a discussion on this historic event. On Wednesday, March 20 at 7 p.m. EDT, Mathew Schmalz, Ph.D., associate professor of religious studies and director of the College Honors Program, will give a live web lecture exclusively for Holy Cross alumni and friends.
Prof. Schmalz's March 20 lecture will address the election of the Argentinian pope and whether that will mean a shift in the Church's focus to the developing world and how that might impact American Catholicism.
At the end of the 15 minute-presentation, Prof. Schmalz will answer viewer questions submitted online. You may submit questions at any time during the lecture by using our chat room. He will also be accepting questions via Twitter (#hclive or @hcalumni), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Facebook.
This special event is presented by the Office of Alumni Relations and the Alumni Education Program in collaboration with the Office of Public Affairs.
