Eric Anglada is a member of the New Hope Catholic Worker, an organic, communal farm outside Dubuque, Iowa. He will travel to Chicago to present, Cities of the Dead: Thomas Merton and the Crisis of Urban Culture.
He writes, “Thomas Merton was well-aware of our ecological crisis long before ‘being green’ hit the mainstream. My presentation will focus on his understanding and critique of the forces that have created that crisis, and what brought him close to a kind of primitivism that questioned many of the foundations of our urban, technological culture.”
There are fewer than 60 days before our General Meeting begins at Loyola. Please make plans to join us!
