When & Where
Center for World Catholicism & Intercultural Theology (CWCIT)
In 1900, only 25% of Catholics
lived in the global South--
Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
By the year 2000, that number
had shifted to nearly 70%.
Established in 2008 by DePaul University,
CWCIT is a leading center of interdisciplinary
research addressing this dramatic
demographic shift in Catholicism.
It seeks to be at the forefront
of the discussion about globalization
and the Catholic Church's future
as a truly worldwide church.
Changes to the 2:00pm Sessions on Tues. & Wed.
Speaker Gösta Hallonsten (Lund University, Sweden) just informed us that, for personal reasons, he is no longer able to attend the conference. He was scheduled to speak with Mark R. Mullins from 2:00-3:30pm on Tuesday, 4/8. Taking his place is speaker Matthew Tan, and that session is now titled "Multiplicity of Identity." (Matthew Tan was originally scheduled to speak with Daniel Groody & Gioacchino Campese from 2:00-4:00pm on Wednesday, 4/9--that session maintains the same title but will now end at 3:30 rather than 4:00pm.)
