Nash Memorial Lecture Series
The Nash Memorial Lecture Series was founded in 1979 by Joseph B. Gavin, SJ, PhD, to honour the first president of Campion College at the University of Regina, Fr. E. Peter W. Nash, SJ, PhD (1913-1997). The Nash Memorial Lecture series is delivered annually and invites distinguished scholars from North America and around the world. Through this series of lectures, Campion College hopes to make a significant contribution to the academic life of the university and community.

Greg Kennedy, SJ is a poet and author of An Ontology of Trash: the disposable and its problematic nature. A Jesuit priest, he is both amused and bemused by our complex relationships with our tools and systems. He looks for points of light and humour in the often grave and absurd workaday stuff of modern life.
As spiritual director at Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Greg explores the confluence of spirituality, ecology and creativity. Trees, music and good conversation enliven him most, especially when they all go together.
