A prolific scholar, Professor Glendon writes and teaches in the fields of human rights, comparative law, constitutional law, and political theory. Among her works are Abortion and Divorce in Western Law (1989), the critically acclaimed Rights Talk: The Impoverishment of Political Discourse (1993), and A World Made New: Eleanor Roosevelt and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (2002). Her lecture Thursday is drawn from her latest book, The Forum and the Tower (2011).

Sponsored by a grant from the Stuck with Virtue Conference Series, the Ernest L. Fortin Lecture Series is named after Fr. Ernest L. Fortin, A.A. Fr Fortin taught at Assumption College, Laval University, and Boston College, where he held joint appointments in the Theology and Political Science Departments and codirected the Institute for the Study of Politics and Religion. The author of books on Dante and St. Augustine, his collected essays have been published in four volumes.
