"Rome, Women and the End of Catholicism" by Phyllis Zagano, Ph.D., Senior Research Associate-In-Residence, Hofstra University
Presented by Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Hofstra Cultural Center in Honor of Women's History Month
Tuesday, March 16, 2010, 7 p.m.
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY … Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Hofstra Cultural Center will celebrate Women’s History Month in March with a presentation titled “Rome, Women and the End of Catholicism” by Phyllis Zagano, Ph.D., Hofstra University Senior Research Associate-in-Residence and Adjunct Professor of Religion. This lecture will take place on Tuesday, March 16, 2010, at 7 p.m. at the Lowenfeld Conference and Exhibition Hall, located in the Axinn Library, 10th Floor, South Campus.
Dr. Phyllis Zagano recently completed a Fulbright Fellowship to the Republic of Ireland, where she examined the historical place and status of women in the Catholic Church. Her lecture and discussion address the central questions regarding the roles of women in Catholicism, past, present and future. How do women further Catholicism’s goals, and what will happen if women cannot participate more?
Dr. Zagano will be introduced by Julie Byrne, Ph.D., Hofstra University’s Monsignor Thomas Hartman Endowed Chair in Catholic Studies. A question and answer period will follow the lecture.
This event is free and open to the public.
