Father Matthew Carnes, S.J., is an associate professor in the Department of Government at Georgetown University. His research examines the dynamics of labor and social welfare policy, with particular interest in the way societies protect their weakest and most vulnerable members; the old, the young, the ill or injured, and the unemployed. His principal regional focus is Latin America, and in recent years he has conducted extensive field research in Argentina, Peru, Chile, and Bolivia. Beyond his academic work, he has served for several extended periods of development and pastoral work in Ecuador, Paraguay, and Mexico. Father Carnes also has a deep connection to Santa Clara University, where, from 2003 to 2008, he lived as the Jesuit-in-Residence in Unity Hall. All are invited to a free event on February 11, from 4 – 5:15 p.m., at the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education, Santa Clara University, Nobili Dinning Room, Nobili Hall, 500 El Camino Real, Santa Clara.
