Upcoming Justice Events
Was Jesus a Manly Man? Measuring Masculinity in the Greco-Roman World

5:30 p.m., March 6
Reilley Room, Reilly Hall

In the Greco-Roman world, "being a man” was a goal to be achieved through careful attention to one’s behavior. Falling short of this ideal opened one to public scorn and ridicule. How did New Testament authors deal with the problem of Jesus’ “emasculating” crucifixion?

Colleen Conway is the author of Behold the Man: Jesus and Greco-Roman Masculinity (Oxford University Press), Men and Women in the Fourth Gospel: Gender and Johannine Characterization (Scholars Press), and co-author of Introduction to the Bible: Sacred Texts and Imperial Contexts (Wiley Blackwell). She is professor of religious studies at Seton Hall University.

This lecture is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the religious studies department and co-sponsored by the gender and women's studies program.

 
Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking): The Role of Science and Environmental Policy

7 p.m., Thursday, March 13
Grewen Auditorium, Grewen Hall

David Piantanida ’88, senior policy analyst at the Environmental Protection Agency, will deliver a lecture titled “Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking): The Role of Science and Environmental Policy.” Oil and natural gas are important sources of energy and will continue to play a vital role in our nation’s future. This talk will focus on the EPA’s research mission to conduct leading-edge research and foster the sound use of science and technology to protect and safeguard the natural environment.

A 1988 Le Moyne College graduate, Piantanida believes that as people of faith we have a moral obligation to protect future generations from pollution and other environmental stressors. This lecture is part of “The Faith That Does Justice" series sponsored by the College's Office of Mission and Identity.
