Martin cancels March 18 Loyola talk
March 15, 2013
The Rev. James Martin, S.J., associate editor of America magazine, has canceled his March 18 talk at Loyola University New Orleans. This talk was part of Loyola’s year-long Presidential Centennial Guest Series developed in honor of the university’s 100-year anniversary.
The next lecture in the series will take place Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m. featuring ABC News political commentator Cokie Roberts, a New Orleans native and daughter of prominent U.S. Representatives Hale and Lindy Boggs. Roberts’ talk, held in Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall on Loyola’s main campus, will provide an historical account of New Orleans politics. She will also discuss the election of Pope Francis.
The lecture series will wrap up with a talk by Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Nicholas Carr April 17 at 7 p.m. in Roussel Hall. Carr, known for his book “The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains,” will examine how our growing dependence on the Internet is influencing the way our minds work, encouraging superficial skimming at the expense of deep conceptual thinking.
Both events with Roberts and Carr are free and open to the public.
