Biography

Conor Kelly is a Ph.D. candidate and Flatley Fellow in theological ethics at Boston College. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in history and theology and a Master of Theological Studies in moral theology from the University of Notre Dame.  His research interests focus on issues of applied ethics, and he is especially concerned with promoting moral discernment in ordinary life.  His dissertation is developing a theology of work and leisure with corresponding ethical applications, precisely to encourage this type of moral evaluation. Conor also attempts to further this goal as a teacher, finding ways to use lectures and discussions to equip his students with tools for ethical reflection in their own lives.

At Boston College, Conor has had the privilege of working as a teaching assistant in the service learning program, giving periodic lectures and facilitating discussion sections that integrated the course readings and the students’ service experiences.  He has also worked as a conference research assistant at the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life, aiding in the organization of a Sesquicentennial Symposium on “Religion and the Liberal Aims of Higher Education” and another on “Religious Diversity and the Common Good.”  For the 2013-2014 academic year, he has been appointed a Graduate Fellow at the Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy.
