USF Lecture to Examine Life and Teachings of Karl Marx

March 29, 2018

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The University of Saint Francis School of Liberal Arts and Sciences invites the community to a free public lecture as part of the 2017-2018 Philosophy/Theology Spring Lecture Series. An interdisciplinary panel will discuss “Karl Marx at 200: Who Cares?” on Sunday, April 15 at 3 p.m. in the Historic Woman’s Club, 826 Ewing Street, Fort Wayne, IN. Guests are asked to use the Wayne Street entrance to the Woman’s Club for easier access to the third floor.
The event’s panel, featuring a German historian (Dr. Barry Jackish), Catholic economist (Dr. Douglas Meador), and Catholic professors of philosophy and theology (Dr. Lance Richey and Dr. Adam DeVille) will look at what good remains in Marx and what benefit can yet be found in studying him 200 years after his birth.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Angela Springer at
