Info on the Jesuits

Jesuits in Conversation is the product of two years of work by the Fordham Jesuit community to introduce the Jesuits working at Fordham University to the larger University community and the public. These interviews include Jesuit priests at Fordham, Jesuit visiting scholars, and young Jesuits-in-training (called scholastics).

Patrick Ryan, S.J., the Laurence J. McGinley Professor of Religion and Society at Fordham (formerly the vice present for University mission and ministry), conducted the interviews. Joseph Koterski, S.J., and Nicholas Lombardi, S.J., coordinated the production with Matt Schottenfeld of our TV studio in the Walsh Family Library. Special thanks to Tim Valentine, S.J., for the original theme music. There are 33 shows in this series to date, and one new one will be posted here each week (barring holidays) and broadcast on Fordham's cable station, Channel 10.
