Curriculum vitae


Teaching interests:

Dr. Nowacek's teaching interests include classical and contemporary social theory, the sociology of law and social perspectives on environment issues. 


David's new course on environmental issues provides "insights from the social make sense of the ecological crisis and respond in an appropriate, Jesuit way to its challenges." The emerging, ecological side of the Jesuit mission enjoins Jesuit institutions -- especially educational institutions -- to lead the way in finding pathways towards more sustainable life ways.  David's course will join campus-wide efforts to cultivate a more ecologically literate student body and involve students directly in making their own campus and surrounding community more ecologically sustainable.


Research interests:


His recent research focuses on early phases of human social development, especially those connected with the emergence of language, the self and the social fundamentals of distinctively human reflective capacities.
