The Special Issue arises from a year-long interdisciplinary faculty seminar at Boston College that examined the growing economic inequality in the United States and globally. The issue also publishes papers on that topic, delivered at a conference at Boston College in Spring, 2016.
This Special Issue sheds light on the nature of economic equality, which becomes pernicious. Its scope, consistent with the seminar and conference, will be interdisciplinary, proposing to illustrate how theological and ethical reflection on inequality can be enriched by incorporating various disciplinary perspectives.
