Secularism and Faith in Irish Higher Education

In June 2019, Mackenzie Price (C'20) traveled to Trinity College, Dublin, a renowned university in Ireland, to perform research through the Education and Social Justice Fellowship, a joint project of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service at Georgetown University. There, Mackenzie spent four weeks conducting interviews with Trinity College staff and students to learn more about the expression of Christian faith on campus. Her consequent work investigates the history of Protestant and Catholic faith at Trinity College, and how members of the Christian faith who reside there are responding to the powerful trends of secularism that are sweeping the campus.
