The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy Lecture Series will feature "Prophecy, Civility and the Common Good," presented by Cathleen Kaveny, professor of law and professor of theology at Notre Dame Law School, on Thursday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Fort Howard Theater, located in the Bemis International Center on the St. Norbert College campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Kaveny teaches contract law at the University of Notre Dame as well as several seminars that explore the relationship between law, philosophy and theology. She is also a columnist for Commonweal magazine, which focuses on politics, religion and ethics. She earned her A.B from Princeton University and her Ph.D. from Yale. Professor Kaveny worked as a clerk for the Ninth Circuit Court in Massachusetts and as an associate in the health-law group of the Boston law firm Ropes and Gray. Her research and lectures have focused on issues that arise from the intersection of law, religion and morality.

The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy was established in 1984 to bring figures in the fields of theology and philosophy to the St. Norbert College campus. The Killeen Chair draws attention to the importance of theology and philosophy in a Catholic liberal arts education and highlights the commitment of St. Norbert College to provide an education that is personally, intellectually and spiritually challenging. The Killeen Chair is an appropriate way of honoring Abbot Killeen's many contributions to St. Norbert College, the Norbertine Order and the wider community.
