Students have displayed interest in specific funeral practices that aren't covered in our program - namely the art of funeral cosmetology. 

Ever wonder any of the following:

How does funeral cosmetology work? 
Does colour/shade make a big difference on the deceased?
What is restorative art?
Why do individuals choose open casket? 

Dawn Duncan, a Funeral Director at Westview Funeral Chapel is coming to speak to students about funeral cosmetology and open casket ceremonies. Our hope is that this event will be able to allow you to observe this interesting death ritual from an academic perspective. 
In other words ... Students are ENCOURAGED to ask questions!

WHEN: November 17, 3:45 p.m.
WHERE: Vitali Lounge, Wemple Building, King's

We will have snacks available for attending students, and as always, feel free to bring any of your friends/classmates/family/co-workers who would be interested in this event!

Hosted by The Board of the London Poverty Research Centre at King's.

London has been through years of difficult transition, but the key to finding a new future lies in our knowledge of what our direct challenges are. With the presence of the London Poverty Research Centre, our community will be provided with the relevant data to face and change the future of poverty in London through knowledge of both the statistics and direct stories of those struggling in poverty. The future begins with the gathering of that knowledge and its direct placement in the hands of leaders and citizens alike to build the community they want. To this the London Poverty Research Centre has dedicated itself.

Student Essay Contest: Markets and Catholic Social Thought
The Institute for Liberal Studies, in conjunction with the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics, is hosting an essay contest on "Markets and Catholic Social Thought".
Students are invited to submit a 1,500 to 2,000 word essay on the topic. The essay should present an original argument, taking into consideration what other scholars have said on the subject. In writing the essay, consider whether for-profit business activity is consistent with a proper understanding of Catholicism.
Essays should reference:
1) Two relevant papal encyclicals: Centesimus Annus (1991) and Evangelium Gaudium (2013).
2) The article Vocation of the Business Leader: A Reflection by Michael Naughton (Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, 2012).
3) At least one of the following books:
  •          Being Consumed: Economics and Christian Desire by William Cavanaugh (Eerdmans, 2008).
  •          Moral Ecology of Markets by Dan Finn (Cambridge, 2006).
  •          Catholic Social Teaching and the Market Economy by Philip Booth (IEA, 2007)
A scholarly panel will judge the essays and award scholarships to up to three students. Scholarships will cover the complete cost of travel and lodging to attend an undergraduate Symposium on Markets and Catholic Social Thought, to be held April 8-9, 2016 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
The spring symposium will bring together students from universities across the United States and Canada to explore in depth the relationships among Catholic social thought, markets, economics, and business ethics. The symposium will consist of two lectures by leading scholars and four discussion sessions based on readings that will be provided to the participants. Meals will be provided.  Completed essays should be sent to the director of the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics, Dr. Michael J. Douma, at mjd289@georgetown.edu, by December 1, 2015.  Scholarship winners will be notified by January 15, 2016.
