Local Humanities


Partnering with Scranton Prep, the Slattery Center sponsors a series of Ignatian Humanities exchanges in our community. Our first annual Lecture in the Ignatian Humanities brought History Chair Dave Dzurec to Scranton Prep to give a lecture on the Jesuit John Bapst and the Know Nothing movement in America in the 1850s. The 2021-22 Scranton Prep lecturer will be History Professor Christopher Gillett. Select student fellows at the Slattery Center will present their work to the Prep community in Fall 2021. Prep students will eventually attend lectures and events at the Slattery Center. In the future, this program will expand to involve other parochial schools in the Scranton community.
