Educating for Transformation—Jesuit and Feminist Approaches in the Classroom and Beyond
This introductory chapter begins with a brief description of the “Jesuit and Feminist Education: Transformative Discourses for Teaching and Learning” conference, held in October 2006, which was the inspiration for the current volume. One hundred twenty-five participants from nineteen of the twenty-eight Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States attended this conference—the first ever to examine the relationship between Jesuit and feminist education. Taken together, the chapters in this volume open a much-needed discussion about how feminist and gender-focused approaches in the classroom can complement, rather than contradict, the methods that St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit Order, taught over five hundred years ago. The discussion then turns to Jesuit and feminist approaches to teaching. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
