Call for Submissions

The influence of John O’Malley, S.J. on Jesuit higher education

Jesuit Higher Education: A Journal (JHE) welcomes submissions exploring the influence of John O’Malley, S.J. on Jesuit higher education. Considering his scholarship on Jesuit history, early modern history, the Second Vatican Council, the development of Ignatian spirituality, and the importance of the humanities in Jesuit education, O’Malley’s work has drawn faculty and students alike into deeper study of the Jesuits and their commitment to education. Further, his scholarship is anchored in the big questions that continue to orient Jesuit higher education as it develops in new contexts and encounters new opportunities and challenges. This collection aims to bring together historical perspectives, interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary conversations, and greater attention to diversifying our understanding of the past and present of Jesuit higher education, as well as Catholic higher education more broadly.
We welcome scholarship, praxis, reflection, and resource articles for this collection. Further, we welcome submissions that examine contemporary questions, opportunities and tensions in Jesuit higher education, as illuminated by O’Malley’s scholarship. As Jesuit higher education continues to develop, we welcome articles that explore subjects such as Jesuit-lay collaboration, changing university demographics (racial and ethnic, gender, economic, religious), the university’s relationship to the church and the wider world, interdisciplinarity, and so forth.
