Welcome to the web-page of the Society for the Study of Cardinal Newman, an informally-constituted group of researchers, scholars, teachers, and other individuals who are dedicated to promoting thoughtful dialogue and genuine understanding regarding the life, work, and legacy of John Cardinal Newman.
As one of its activities, the Society regularly organizes conference sessions in connection with the annual meeting of the American Catholic Philosophical Association, or ACPA. For information on the Society's 2009 conference session, please see the 2009 ACPA meeting schedule by clicking here. For information on the Society's upcoming 2010 conference session (to take place Nov. 6, 2010 in Baltimore, MD), please see the 2010 ACPA meeting schedule by clicking here.

Please note that we are not in any way affiliated with another group, operating under the title of 'The Cardinal Newman Society' and aimed at 'renewing and strengthening Catholic identity' at American Catholic universities and colleges. Unlike the Cardinal Newman Society, the Society for the Study of Cardinal Newman does not 'monitor' speeches, events, performances, or classroom activities at American Catholic colleges and universities; it does not campaign for or against any political candidate or cause; it does not solicit or accept monetary contributions from any persons or corporations; and it does not employ any salaried officers or staff members. The aim of the Society for the Study of Cardinal Newman is simply to promote thoughtful dialogue and genuine understanding regarding the life, work, and legacy of John Cardinal Newman himself. In the spirit of Newman's Idea of a University, one might say that we are committed to pursuing the truth about Newman's life, work, and legacy for its own sake.
