The event is co-sponsored by the Mount’s Catholic and Dominican Institute and the Thomistic Institute at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C.

The first day of the conference will be devoted to graduate students, in philosophy or adjacent disciplines. The following days will combine presentations by philosophers with periods for panel discussions and debate.

James Brent, O.P. of the Dominican House of Studies; Michael Gorman of the Catholic University of America; Thomas Osborne of the University of St. Thomas; Candace Vogler of the University of Chicago; Steven Jensen of the University of St. Thomas; V. Bradley Lewis of the Catholic University of America; and Joshua Hochschild of Mount Saint Mary’s University.

The Catholic and Dominican Institute promotes the Mount’s heritage of St. Dominic, advances the Dominican charism of study and service, provides a forum for discussion of contemporary ethical issues, and enhances Catholic and Jewish dialogue. The Institute welcomes persons of varied faiths and acknowledges different religious traditions as essential to the college’s intellectual and spiritual life.

In addition to the annual philosophy workshop, the Catholic and Dominican Institute arranges lectures during the academic year.

The Institute is directed by Charles Zola, chair of the Division of Philosophy and Religious Studies, associate professor of Philosophy, and director of the Mount’s Catholic and Dominican Institute.
