Dr. Kirk Bingaman is the Associate Professor at Fordham Univeristy's Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education. He's also the author of the book The Power of Neuroplasticity for Pastoral and Spiritual Care.

Imagine a theatre performance group where every member is encouraged to tackle it all: from acting on stage, to preparing the set, and even controlling the lights! Fordham University's Mimes and Mummers is doing just that. Members of the group say they're moving away from "on stage" and "off stage" cast, and instead strive to cultivate a collection of multitalented and well-rounded team of theatre lovers.

Fordham Conversations: Jesuit Martyrs of El Salvador

by Robin Shannon, Megan Connor

Spring Hill College; sch.edu

Early in the morning of November 16th 1989 a group of soldiers entered a Catholic college campus in San Salvador and forced six Jesuit priests from their beds. They then shot and killed them along wit their housekeeper and her daughter. It all happened during the decade long civil war that ravaged El Salvador in the 1980s. The murders provoked international outrage. We are joined by three guests to discuss the massacre, the preists' mission, and their legacy.
