In 1994, through the generosity of Bannan Institute of the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education, the Department of Religious Studies of Santa Clara University inaugurated the Santa Clara Lectures.
This series brings to campus leading scholars in theology, offering the University community and the general public an ongoing exposure to debate on the most significant issues of our times. Santa Clara University publishes these lectures and distributes them throughout the United States and internationally.

Solidarity is a key concept in Catholic social ethics. Yet the demands of this summons have yet to be applied in a sustained way to the racial tensions and divisions that mark U.S. life. What does authentic solidarity between estranged racial groups require? How does such cross-racial solidarity expand the boundaries of Catholic social reflection? In the 2010-2011 Santa Clara Lecture, Professor Bryan Massingale will seek to address these questions and reflect on the the kind of virtues and spirituality needed for cross-racial solidarity today.
