Jean Vanier Research Centre brings ideas for radical change to King’s

May 2, 2019

King’s University College at Western University has welcomed the Jean Vanier Research Centre to campus. King’s states that the purpose of the JVRC is to “use an interdisciplinary analysis of Jean Vanier’s applied form of scholarship to catalyze radical change in how people imagine the intrinsic value and social possibilities of those who are disabled or otherwise marginalized by exclusionary societal structures and discriminatory attitudes” “Dr. Vanier’s philosophical, social scientific, and theological writing has the potential for greater influence in a setting like King’s, where a diverse array of students and scholars can engage with, critique, and advance the best of his ideas,” said King’s Interim Principal Sauro Camiletti. London Free Press King's (1) | King's (2) (ON)
