“The Personal Is Political”: At the Intersections of Feminist and Jesuit Education

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter maps out a general topography of points of convergence and divergence between feminist and Jesuit education. It draws out their relationship by exploring how the five central elements of Ignatian education—context, experience, reflection, action, and evaluation—relate to a feminist pedagogy premised on the idea that “the personal is political.” To describe how this connection can inform and transform educational practices, the chapter builds on the practical example of consciousness-raising and direct action projects employed in an Introduction to Feminist Thought course.

Keywords: Ignatian education; context; experience; reflection; action; evaluation; feminist pedagogy
