Society of Catholic Social Scientists 31st National Meeting-Conference 2023 at Franciscan University of Stubenville

We welcome everyone to the Society of Catholic Social Scientists annual meeting -conference, which is being held this year at Franciscan University of Steubenville. The conference always features stimulating talks and panels on social science topics approached from a Catholic perspective. One does not have to be a Society member to attend and the registration fee is moderate as far as scholarly conferences go. The Society always does welcome new members who are interested in the social sciences and faithful to Catholic teaching. The conference is always intellectually stimulating, but also a great opportunity for Catholic fellowship. -Dr. Stephen M. Krason, President
