WHEELING, W. Va. –Wheeling Jesuit University in conjunction with the Institute of Capitalism and Morality (ISCM) will host a panel discussion reflecting on the American election process and outcomes entitled “The 2012 Election: Where Do We Go from Here?”
The discussion will be held in the NTTC Auditorium on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 7pm.
Regardless of one’s political affiliations or decisions in the recent election, all citizens can recognize that the nation and its newly re-elected President Obama face many significant challenges, some new and others ongoing. Beyond reflecting on these concerns, the panel will address the ways this election may have revealed more fundamental issues that threaten or compromise American democracy and society.
Wheeling Jesuit University faculty members Fr. Jim O’Brien, S.J. (Professor of Philosophy), Dr. Chris Stadler (Assistant Professor of Political Science), and Dr. Jessica Wrobleski (Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Theology) will offer their reflections on the questions and challenges before the United States following the 2012 Election. The conversation is moderated by Dr. Joseph Laker (Emeritus Professor of History).
Founded in the spring of 2006 as a result of a generous gift from the BB&T Charitable Foundation, the ISCM is dedicated to an examination of capitalism and a free society. It supports the growth and development of teaching and research while establishing a forum for differing opinions to promote an appreciation of the concept, operation and effects of a Capitalistic system by engaging students and the community in activities designed to stimulate discussion of these important topics.
