Authors are invited to submit their work for possible publication in the first book to consider the topic of Justice in Jesuit Higher Education, Transforming the World and Being Transformed, to be published by Fordham University Press.  

The editors encourage authors to submit papers that challenge us to articulate how our Jesuit colleges and universities create an educational community inspired to transform the lives of our students and ourselves. This volume, possibly the first in a series, will contribute to the shared commitment to Fr. Pedro Arrupe’s ideal of forming men and women for others, guided by a passion to seek justice in an unjust world.  Therefore, this book will honor the scholarship, teaching and service that have developed out of a commitment to these ideals. A second goal of the book is that it will strengthen our substantive academic commitment to the promotion of justice at Jesuit schools and other schools of higher education.

Transforming the World and Being Transformed will feature introductions by such internationally acclaimed authors as the Rev. Dean Brackley, S.J., Lisa Cahill, Dave O’Brien, and the Rev. Steve Privett, S.J., and will be organized into three sections:        

  • Formation and Learning: How do we promote justice in student life experiences and service?*
  • Research and Teaching: How do we promote justice-specific research, teaching, and reflection?*
  • Our Way of Proceeding: How do our institutions exemplify justice in their daily practices?*

Authors who are presenting their papers at the Jesuit Justice in Higher Education conference entitled, Transforming the World and Being Transformed, at Fairfield University, June 18-20, 2009, are also encouraged to submit their papers for possible publication in the book. The submission deadline for authors who are presenting their papers at the June conference is August 1, 2009. 

The submission deadline for authors who are not presenting their papers at the June conference is April 21, 2009. All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process and will be given equal consideration.

The editors request that all papers be approximately 20 pages in length, double spaced, in 12 point font and in Chicago Manual of Style for formatting notes and references. Please refer to the Guidelines for Preparing your Manuscript Submission Form for additional information.
