Assistant Professor, Duquesne University, McAnulty Graduate School of Liberal Arts

Dr. Bailey’s research interests are in the area of social ethics. His dissertation, Transforming the Liberal-Communitarian Debate: Jacques Maritain’s Vision of Self in Community, written under the direction of David Hollenbach, examined the challenge that pluralism poses to our ability to articulate a strong and common basis for the promotion of human flourishing.

His most recent research project focuses on new and more effective ways of alleviating poverty, and he published an article related to this topic in the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics in 2004 (see below). He has just completed a book titled Rethinking Poverty: Income, Assets, and the Catholic Social Justice Tradition to be published by University of Notre Dame Press in 2010.

Dr. Bailey has presented papers at national and international conferences, including the annual meetings of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Christian Ethics and the Catholic Ethics in the World Church conference (in Padua, Italy). He has been a convener of the Ethics and Political Economy Interest Group of the Society of Christian Ethics since 2004. In 2006, Professor Bailey was an invited speaker at Duquesne Law School, Sienna College’s Franciscan Center for Catholic Studies (Albany, NY), and the Pittsburgh Summer Leadership Conference.

Dr. Bailey is the Theology Department’s Director of Undergraduate Studies and Chair of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee.
