Centre of Inquiry on Liberal Education and Social Justice

The work of the Centre takes place within a Catholic context that mines rich seams of educational philosophy and social teaching. This context is also, by definition, multi-cultural and ecumenical, and aspires to a vision of liberal education that is enriched by alternative and rival perspectives. Thus it is both catholic and Catholic.

The approach will be inter-disciplinary: recognizing where two or more intellectual disciplines are in comfortable debt to each other. The Centre will support research across the whole realm of social justice and education; this will include, but not be limited to, religious education—which is but one, albeit vital, part of a Catholic vision of liberal education.

Friday, September 26th, 2014
12 noon (beginning with lunch) until 5pm
Venue: Charbonnel Lounge, 81 St. Mary Street, Toronto, ON

Building on the Inaugural symposium of last February, this symposium will continue our reflections on all teaching activities at St Michael's. It will provide opportunities for faculty, fellows, as well as alumni/ae and friends who are educators, to reflect systematically on questions of curriculum and pedagogy at all levels.

The symposium will be shaped around four complementary presentations given by our colleagues: Darren Dias, Ann Dooley, Jenna Sunkenberg, Michael Vertin—with plenty of time for questions and discussion.
