“The connections you can make in Boston, as well as the opportunities in the surrounding areas here, are second to none in the media industry. Being at Curry, there are so many different ways to get your foot in the door early, at places like NESN, The Boston Globe and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and Revolution.”

Dr. Les Muray's essay, "Organic Marxism and the Marxist Tradition," has been published in Philip Clayton and Justin Heinzekehr's collection Socialism in Process. This essay is another outgrowth of Dr. Muray's broader work on the re-envisioning of Marxism through a process lens that is more responsive to current ecological concerns.
Dr. Muray also presented a paper entitled "The Transformative Vision of John Ford's Fort Apache" at the annual meeting of Institute for American Religious Thought in Manitou Springs, CO in June 2016.
Dr. Muray also had an article published in English in Russia (which had been previously published in Russian), entitled "Evolution and Human Uniqueness" (Unikalnost' cheloveks ili ego svoeobrazie); it was published in Communicative Universe of Spiritual Culture (Коммуникационный универсум духовной культуры), eds. B.L. Gubman and I. E. Klyukanov (Moscow: RosNou, 2015), 123-131.
Also in 2016, Dr. Muray was also appointed to the Fulbright Grant Peer Review Committee in Religious Studies.
Professor Rob Smid successfully presented his paper, "Logic is Rooted in the Social Principle: A Communitarian Theory of Knowledge Drawn from the Work C.S. Peirce" at the annual meeting of the Institute for American Religious and Philosophic Thought in Manitou Springs, CO in June, 2016.
In 2015, Professor Smid participated in a conference on "Continental and Comparative Philosophy" in Reykjavik, Finland.
Professor Bette Manter recently delivered her paper, "Royce's Problem with Sin: Morbid Obsession or Moral Insight?" at the Josiah Royce Society Conference, in Grass Valley, California (Royce's birthplace). Her paper consisted of a fascinating philosophical study of the notion of sin as defined by the individual and an assessment of the American philosopher Josiah Royce's contributions to this issue.
Dr. Manter's essay "The Incompleteness of Loyalty" has been included in the book Josiah Royce for the Twenty-first Century: Historical, Ethical, and Religious Interpretations (edited by Kelly A. Parker and Krzysztof Piotr Skowronski) by Lexington Books. (https://rowman.com/ISBN/9780739173374).
