Paideia and the Political Process: The Unexplored Coincidence of Jesuit and Feminist Pedagogical Visions

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter takes a broad view of both Jesuit and feminist educational visions. It argues for abandoning the term “pedagogy,” which fails to capture the Jesuit movement of seeking social justice by moving beyond the confines of the classroom, in favor of paideia—the total educational role of the entire institution as it prepares students to become citizens of the world. Furthermore, Jesuit universities and colleges stand to benefit from a convergence of these two methods in a strategic alliance between the two in calling on our Jesuit institutions to pay closer attention to their social and religious responsibilities.

Keywords: Jesuit education; feminist education; pedagogy; social justice
