Mark your calendar! As announced earlier this year, Professor Giuseppe Franco is the recipient of the 2019 Novak Award. In the upcoming 19th annual Calihan Lecture, Franco will examine the social philosophy and economic ethics of Wilhelm Röpke, 19th century economist said to be one of the spiritual fathers of the social market economy.
The lecture will take place on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at the University of San Diego in California, during which Prof. Matt Zwolinski, director of the University’s Center for Ethics, Economics, and Public Policy, will lead a brief interview-style discussion of the current implications of Röpke’s enduring legacy. At the conclusion of the 55-minute presentation, Rev. Robert A. Sirico, Acton’s president and co-founder, will present Franco with the 2019 Novak Award.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, visit acton.org/calihan2019. If you are unable to join in person, the lecture will be video recorded for delayed broadcast on Acton’s YouTube channel.
Hosted by Acton Institute, this event is co-sponsored by the University of San Diego, Franciscan School of Theology, Center for Ethics, Economics, and Public Policy and the Harpst Center for Catholic Thought and Culture.
