Conference: Social Justice and Catholic Education


The Research School of the Convent of Jesus and Mary in conjunction with the Network for Researchers in Catholic Education, is convening a one-day conference on Thursday 12th March on the theme of Catholic Education and Social Justice.

The conference is aimed at headteachers, governors, researchers and all advocates of Catholic education. Delegates will explore the relationship between Catholic education and social justice.

The Keynote speakers are Professors Stephen McKinney and Gerald Grace with Professor Richard Pring giving a response. Short research papers will be offered by other speakers including Dr Margaret Buck and Dr Ann Casson.

This is the first academic conference to be hosted by the Convent of Jesus and Mary Language College, in North London, a school that is committed to being a research focused school.

Headmistress, Louise McGowan, said she is: "Delighted to be bringing together leading Catholic academics within a school setting to consider the issue of social justice in Catholic education."

The Convent of Jesus and Mary is a girls' comprehensive school in the inner London borough of Brent. Last year the school created its own research centre dedicated to Catholic Education. The school has close links with St Mary's University, Twickenham, with several staff completing the MA in Catholic School Leadership. This first school-based academic conference is being organised in collaboration with the Network for Researchers in Catholic Education.

Cost - £65. (£40 conc)
