On November 12, Fordham Law School’s Institute on Religion, Law and Lawyer’s Work will host a discussion between Fordham Professor Christine Hinze and Susan Whelan, author of “The Scholar and The Housewife.”
In October 2014, Pope Francis convened a Synod of Bishops from around the world to discuss matters related to “the family”, including the high educational and social expectations for adults and children, the impact of long hours and demanding work on the family, economic pressures, wealth and poverty, instilling values, a moral framework and religious beliefs in children, consumerism, careerism and individualism.
Fordham Law School’s Institute on Religion, Law and Lawyer’s Work continues its focus on the work of Pope Francis with a conversation between Fordham Professor Christine Hinze and author Susan Whelan of the challenges faced by young, highly-educated professionals in achieving success in their public and private lives. In her book The Scholar and The Housewife, Whelan, a lawyer and mother of six children now in their twenties, discusses events and people that have informed her personal and professional choices, sharing insights and guiding principles for living out moral ideals and religious beliefs in a modern world.
