The 110th Earl Lectures and Leadership Conference will focus on matters relating to faith and the economy. The lectures and conference, which will take place January 25-27, 2011, at Pacific School of Religion, is entitled "Our Daily Bread: Faith, Work, and the Economy." The featured speaker for the lectures is Robert Reich, professor of public policy at University of California, Berkeley. Reich, who wrote the book Aftershock: the Next Economy and America’s Future, served as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton.
In keeping with the theme of the three-day gathering, conference panels entitled "Work and Economic Justice Across Faith: Christian, Jewish, and Muslim Perspectives," and "Faith, Funding, and Foundations" will be offered. Additionally, there will be meal-time gatherings, worship and art exhibits.
Started in 1901, the lectures were established to bring prominent religious leaders and thinkers to Berkeley’s university community. For information and registration, go to: psr.edu/earllectures, or call 510-849-8218 or 800-999-0528, ext. 8218.
