ABOUT THE TALK

As Marquette's Mission Week 2011 keynote speaker, Farmer embraced the theme of Imagine God by sharing stories and images of failed imagination in Haiti and elsewhere and by describing Partners In Health's work to bring health equity to its project sites around the world.

ABOUT THE SERIES

Each February, Marquette reflects on its Catholic, Jesuit identity during Mission Week. This year's theme, Imagine God, gave the Marquette community a chance to explore its imagination and experience how music, art, poetry, scholarship and reflection contribute to our understanding of God and the world.
