Theology Department (Theological Ethics)

Conor M. Kelly (Ph.D., Boston College, 2015) is a Catholic theological ethicist who works at the intersection of fundamental moral theology and applied ethics. In addition to ethical methodology, he specializes in sexual ethics, social ethics, and health care ethics. His research focuses on the process of moral discernment in ordinary life, on both the personal and social levels. Recent work includes articles in the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, the Journal of Religion and Popular Culture, and The Tablet as well as forthcoming pieces in the Journal of Catholic Higher Education and Springer’s Handbook of Virtue Ethics in Business and Management. Ongoing projects involve research into the nature and operation of structural sin, the theological significance of work and leisure, and ethical issues in public health.
