Life & Learning University Faculty for Life

Life & Learning XXXI is Now Available!!!

Due to the great editing work of Don Flanagan, the new edition of Life & Learning is now available at this link. Life & Learning is University Faculty for Life’s annual scholarly publication. The volume largely includes papers from our annual conferences.

Father Joe Koterski S.J. edited these volumes for three decades. After Father Joe’s untimely passing in August 2021, Don stepped in to finish volume 31. We are tremendously grateful to Don for taking on this important task.

Volume 31 features an introduction by Mary Lemmons and papers by Kathleen Raviele, Angela Franks, Charles Bellinger, David Hershenov and Philip Reed, Erika Bachiochi, Richard Myers, Keith Cassidy, Bernadette Waterman Ward, Theres Kenney, and Jeff Koloze.
