Interreligious Dialogue at a Momentous Anniversary: Religious Educators Re-Imagining Nostra Aetate in Connecting, Disrupting, and Transforming Ways
Carl Procario-Foley (Iona College)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] The fiftieth anniversary of Nostra Aetate challenges religious educators to examine the signs of the times and to imagine how this document is best taught in the face of interreligious bigotry, violence, ignorance, and indifference. Examining the postmodern landscape, this paper discusses ways to connect with the seminal points of this historic document while exploring new trajectories especially relevant for today.


Pluralizing Catholic Identit(y/ies)
Graham McDonough (University of Victoria)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] In an age where secularism and lack of religious commitment are perceived to be eroding Catholic school distinctiveness, Cook (2001) proposes that Catholic educational leaders become “architects of Catholic culture,” and Rymarz (2013) perceives several challenges to the permeation of Catholic identity in Catholic schools. Interestingly, neither author explores what Catholic culture or identity mean, and refer to them in singular terms. I contend that proposals concerning Catholic culture and identity are limited unless they acknowledge a plurality of Catholic identities.
