Event description

Description

"Growth is the only evidence of life" - J. H. Newman

The Newman Lecture was first delivered at McGill University in 1989 by the renowned literary critic Northrop Frye (1912-1991) . Since its inception, its purpose has been to explore the role of the secular university in the modern world and the place of faith within that context. It has done so either by presenting themes and ideas from the writings of John Henry Newman, author of The Idea of a University (first published in 1852), or by exploring particular facets of Catholic philosophy, theology, and culture as they relate to the academic vocation and disciplined scholarship. The 30th edition of the Newman Lecture in 2019 continues to offer fresh perspectives on the academic vocation, the role of the university, and the Christian intellectual tradition.
