Academy Elects Cahill

Prof. Lisa Sowle Cahill (Theology) has been elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Science and will be inducted at an Oct. 5 ceremony in Cambridge.

Cahill joins former US Senator Bill Bradley and novelist Russell Banks among the 159 new members elected to the AAAS this year. The 216-year-old academy has honored the achievements of some 3,350 American and 570 foreign scientists, scholars, artists, journalists, politicians and other professionals.

"It is an honor to be elected a fellow of the academy," Cahill said. "I look forward to utilizing the academy's resources to bring theology into conversation with other disciplines of contemporary intellectual life."

"We are delighted at Lisa Cahill's selection," said College of Arts and Sciences Dean J. Robert Barth, SJ. "It is certainly a testimony to her well-respected expertise in Catholic and moral theology, and an achievement of which the College of Arts and Sciences and the University community can be proud."
