The Visiting Chair in American Catholic Studies brings to Fordham noted scholars in the field of American Catholic studies, Catholic theology, or Catholic ethics. The Chair’s purpose is to serve and enrich Fordham’s Jesuit, Catholic mission and identity by making it possible for members of the Fordham community to interact with scholars and teachers from a range of fields of study who are making influential contributions on topics related to U.S. Catholic thought and practice.
Professor Finn holds the William E. and Virginia Clemens Chair in Economics and the Liberal Arts at the University of Saint John’s, Collegeville, Minn. An internationally respected economic ethicist, his authored and edited books include Christian Economic Ethics: History and Implications (2013), The True Wealth of Nations: Catholic Social Thought and Economic Life (ed., 2010), and The Moral Ecology of Markets: Assessing Claims about Markets and Justice (2006).
