Course Description

This course explores Ignatian spirituality as a resource for the construction of religious narratives that contribute to intentional, social transformation in a secular context. Students develop a transdisciplinary approach to ecological, social, cultural and ecclesial reconciliation. Students develop an understanding of the evolution of a religious and cultural recognition of the autonomous rights of indigenous peoples. Elements of recognition theory and transitional justice are introduced through a discussion of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools. Lectures and assigned readings draw on authors such as Craig Calhoun, Jose Casanova, Cynthia Crysdale, Robert Doran, Pope Francis, Renee Girard, Roger Haight, Bernard Lonergan, James L. Marsh, J. R. Miller, Ronald Niezen, Karl Rahner, Thomas Reynolds, Paul Ricoeur, and Charles Taylor.
