Charles C. Camosy
Charles C. Camosy grew up in the cornfields of Wisconsin, but is grateful to be teaching in the Bronx. A theme running throughout his work is the fostering of intellectual solidarity between political and ethical approaches which find conversation difficult. A Roman Catholic anthropology which refuses to choose to between individually- and communally-construed understandings of personal dignity is particularly important in this regard.
He has put this intellectual solidarity into practice as the founding member of the organizing committee for an international conference designed to think and speak differently about abortion, the founder and co-director of the Catholic Conversation Project, an editor and contributor for catholicmoraltheology.com, and a board member of Democrats for Life.
Camosy is also on the board of the College Theology Society and the advisory board of the New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good. He is thrilled to be a part of the international working group Contending Modernities which is spending four years exploring how Catholicism, Islam and Secular Liberalism can productively interact in the public sphere with regard to difficult ethical issues related to science and bioethics.
