Reception to Follow
Professor Copeland is the recipient of numerous honorary degrees and awards, including Barry University’s Yves Congar Award for Excellence in Theology. She is the author of the books Enfleshing Freedom: Body, Race, and Being (2010) and The Subversive Power of Love: The Vision of Henriette Delille (2009) and more than 80 articles, reviews, and book chapters.
According to Professor Copeland, teaching in the Ignatian tradition might best be described as "accompaniment," that is, taking up a position beside the student. That same description and posture may be applied to the student involved in service-learning, taking up a position beside the one served. Her lecture will sketch some dimensions of accompaniment in teaching and service-learning.
