Professor Shannon Debates Brown University Scholar on History of the FamilyJanuary 31, 2013
“I do not take issue with the facts Professor Self presents, but rather the framework within which he organizes these facts,” says Professor Shannon. “Self’s underlying assumption that the family is merely a social construct obscures the true stakes of the political debate over issues like gay marriage and undermines his own stated concern to defend a robust public political culture against the increasing trends toward privatization during the era from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush.”
This debate took place on the scholarly website of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History. To read the debate, click here.
Shannon was also recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars. Find out more about the Fellowship here: catholicscholars.org
