Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Sept. 28: A lecture at DePauw on Bioethics and Faith


Gilbert Meilaender, professor of Christian Ethics at Valparaiso University

When: Wednesday 28 September, 7:30-9:00 PM

Where: Watson Forum of the Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media at DePauw University.

DePauw University established the Burleigh Lecture event in 2003 to bring outstanding Roman Catholic scholars to campus. The 2005 guest lecturer is Bioethics expert Gilbert Meilaender. Dr. Meilaender is a professor of Christian Ethics at Valparaiso University and has published eleven books including Bioethics: A Primer for Christians; Working: Its Meaning and Its Limits; Things That Count: Essays Moral and Theological; and The Taste for the Other: The Social and Ethical Thought of C.S. Lewis. Dr. Meilaender has been an associate editor for both the Journal of Religious Ethics and Religious Studies Review, and has served on the editorial board of the Annual of the Society of Religious Ethics, Dialog, and on the editorial advisory board of First Things. "Gilbert Meilaender, a pillar of common sense and uncommon wisdom, finds in the many surfaces of everyday life the deepest truths of the human condition," states Leon R. Kass, the Addie Clark Harding Professor in the Committee on Social Thought and the College at the University of Chicago. "His essays are wonderfully thoughtful, well argued, and gracefully written.” (Leon Kass, by the way, is the guru for the Bush Administration for issues of bioethics such as stem cell research ... so his endorsement of Prof. Meilaender could be a clue about the arguments of this evening's talk.)
