Fr. Bryan MassingaleCharlie Camosy is a theology professor at Fordham University in Bronx, New York. His work often focuses on the theme of “intellectual solidarity between political and ethical approaches which find conversation difficult.” He has exemplified this intellectual solidarity through his participation in founding an international conference for changing the image of abortion, as founder and co-director of the Catholic Conversation Project, as an editor and contributor for, and as a board member of Democrats for Life. Furthermore, he is a part of the international group, Contending Modernities, that explores the possible methods of productive public interaction between Catholicism, Islam, and Secular Liberalism.

Charlie is also an award-winning author of four books: Too Expensive to Treat?: Finitude, Tragedy, and the Neonatal ICU; Peter Singer and Christian Ethics: Beyond Polarization; For Love of Animals: Christian Ethics, Consistent Action; and Beyond the Abortion Wars: A Way Forward for a New Generation.

Camosy has published in numerous Catholic or religious periodicals such as Crux, National Catholic Reporter, and First Things, among others. That his work can be found in such a diverse array of journals makes it is clear that he speaks to Catholics of all theological and political leanings within the United States, a rare feat indeed in this age of polarization within the Church.
