John Crowley-Buck
Ph.D. - Christian Ethics

I earned my Ph.D. from the Department of Theology at Loyola University Chicago in the field of Christian Ethics in 2016.

Most recently, I worked as Special Assistant to the Vice President in the Office of Mission & Ministry at Georgetown University, and taught as an Adjunct Lecturer in the Department of Theology & Religious Studies.

My research areas, and interests, include questions of normativity in ethical reflection and deliberation, Roman Catholic theology and ethics, hermeneutics, political theology, social ethics, aesthetics and ethics, liberation theologies, religion & society, and religion & law. I also have a keen interest in the work of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), particularly around questions of mission, identity, and pedagogy. I am the co-editor, with Prof. Michael Schuck, of Democracy, Culture, and Catholicism: Voices from Four Continents (FUP, 2015).

I worked as the Graduate Research Assistant at The Joan and Bill Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage at Loyola University Chicago from 2009-2015, and from 2015-2016, I was the Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the Hank Center. I graduated from Boston College in 2005 with my B.A. in Theology and English, and again in 2008 with my M.A. in Theological Ethics. As a graduate student at BC, I worked at The Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life from 2007-2008.

Outside of my academic work and interests, I enjoy swimming, sailing, skiing, reading, cooking, and traveling. I am fluent in English and Spanish, conversant in Italian, and I have a reading level knowledge of German.
