This course examines the history of U.S. American Christian social ethics as an academic discipline, a form of public discourse, and an ecumenical tradition. It begins with the founding of social ethics in the 1880s, explores the 20th century development of social ethical methods and theologies in the white Protestant, black church, and Roman Catholic communities, and emphasizes Social Gospel, Christian realist, and neo-Thomist debates concerning economic democracy, militarism, racial justice, cultural pluralism, and other social justice issues.
