June 18
Breeders, a film by the Center for Ethics and Culture, investigates the growing practice of surrogacy: “Surrogacy is fast becoming one of the major issues of the 21st century—celebrities and everyday people are increasingly using surrogates to build their families. But the practice is fraught with complex implications for women, children, and families. What is the impact on the women who serve as surrogates and on the children who are born from surrogacy?” See this flyer for more information.

Dietrich von Hildebrand and the Philosophy of Value: A graduate-student seminar
June 30–July 3
Franciscan University of Steubenville invites graduate students to apply to join John F. Crosby and Jonathan Sanford for a seminar this summer on von Hildebrand and questions of value: “What is the relationship between good and value? Are they sympathetic or antagonistic? Is value nothing more than a subjectivistic corruption of good, or does it deepen and refine our understanding of good?” Visit the seminar’s Facebook page, or apply via the Dietrich von Hildebranch Legacy Project website.
