An intimate gathering of of senior scholars, younger scholars, and graduate students, for two and a half days of discussion and scholarly exchange.

The conference will begin on Tuesday, May 12, with a dinner at the Lonergan Research Institute at Regis College, Toronto, with members of the LRI scholarly community. It will conclude late morning on Friday, May 15.

The overall goal of this event is to enrich and enhance the interactive scholarship of women in the fields of philosophy and theology who use the work of Bernard Lonergan in their research and teaching, and to develop and nurture a community of women Lonergan scholars.

We are fortunate to have with us some women who will facilitate our conversation: Catherine Clifford (St Paul, Ottawa); M. Shawn Copeland (Boston College); Kerry Cronin (Boston College); Christine Jamieson (Concordia, Montreal); Paulette Kidder (Seattle University); Elizabeth Murray (Loyola Marymount); Monika Walczak (Poland); Kathleen Williams (Australia); Marcia Mary Cook (Sewanee, TN).

Conference coordinators: Cynthia Crysdale (Sewanee, TN); Cristina Vanin (St. Jerome’s, Waterloo)


Room and board will be provided. Travel from Regis College to Loyola House, and from Loyola House to Toronto Pearson Airport, will be covered. Participants are expected to make their own travel arrangements to and from Toronto.
