The Education and Social Justice Project: International Summer Research Fellowships 2019
February 11, 2020
This report reflects on the tenth year of the Education and Social Justice Project, which provided three Georgetown University students with fellowships, allowing them to travel to Ireland, Thailand, and Malawi to conduct in-depth examinations of innovative educational initiatives, with a focus on the work of Jesuit institutions.
Project fellows spent three weeks with institutions engaged in efforts to promote social justice through education.
- Mackenzie Price (C'20) learned about the intricacies of ecumenical faith, religiously-charged politics, and communal dialogue at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland.
- Allison Ross (NHS'20) spent three weeks in Chiang Saen, Thailand, at the Xavier Learning Community (XLC), where she examined inclusion and inculturation, or how the XLC creates a unique community out of the diversity of its students and staff.
- Isaac Kim (SFS'20) explored community building as a form of Catholic inculturation and the formation of Ignatian leaders at the Loyola Jesuit Secondary School (LJSS) in Kasungu, Malawi. Kim’s final case study will be published on the Berkley Center’s website in 2020.
