Other Campus Resources

Going beyond the conventional focus on scholarly panels, the conference will also draw upon the resources of other units in the university: 

  • The DeBartolo Performing Arts Center is an inclusive destination for enjoying the region’s premier cinematic and performing arts programs. An extensive schedule of independent art house film screenings and the Presenting Series’ season of music, dance, and theater reflect Notre Dame’s Catholic character and the academy’s pursuit of knowledge.
  • The Eck Visitors Center, adjacent to the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore, stands close to the Notre Dame Avenue entrance to campus. Both buildings opened in 1998 to serve as a first stop for visitors. The Eck Center houses a 150-seat auditorium and presents an introductory video about Notre Dame.
  • Hesburgh Libraries connects people to knowledge across time and space. It is the library’s job to acquire, preserve, organize, and steward this knowledge in a way that makes it accessible for study by all scholars throughout time. To this end, the Hesburgh Libraries contributes to the mission of the University by providing distinctive collections, expertise, services, and spaces that enhance teaching, learning, and research for and in collaboration with the University community.
