Book in Progress
Book Proposal approved by the University of Toronto Press
Rosa Bruno-Jofré and Jon Igelmo, eds. Catholicism and Education: Fifty Years After Vatican II (1962-1965), a Transnational Interdisciplinary Encounter. Contributors : Michael Attridge, Rosa Bruno-Jofré, Jon Igelmo, Bernard Hugonnier, Gemma Serrano, Paulí Dávila, Luis Naya Garmendia, Christopher Beeman, Lindsay Morcom, William Pinar, Joseph Stafford, Carlos Martínez Valle, Joseph Stafford, Elizabeth Smyth, Heidi MacDonald, Cristian Cox, Patricia Imbarack.
The book will provide, first, an historical conceptual overview of the tenets of Catholic education over the last two centuries, its critical social de-alignment in the 1960s, and a discussion of theological changes after Vatican II and their implications for Catholic education. Next, there is an examination of the relationship between Church and state, as well as of the intersection of the Catholic experience with the social imaginaries of the 1960s and 1970s. This is done through the analysis of Catholic education in France (the cradle of many congregations with missions in the countries studied), Spain, Canada, and Chile.
The case studies on Spain focus on the conjuncture created by changes in the Church in the 1960s and the period of late Francoism. After discussing the processes of re-signification of missions, which started to gain ground in the 1960s when John XXIII appealed to religious congregations to go to Latin America, the case studies address the apostolate work of female Canadian teaching congregations in Canada and abroad. Attention is paid to the way the missionary experience affected the congregations at home. Not less important is the way in which claims of the social movements of the 1960s were translated into arguments that actively demanded funding for Catholic schools in Ontario.
After Vatican II, the Catholic school curriculum and classroom went through various processes confronting change. In the case of Canada, the study traces the changes and proposes a renewed curricula in religious studies. In the case of Chile, the study examines the social commitment of various Catholic schools serving different socio-economic constituencies as expressed in their mission statements, and how the latter relate to Vatican and Latin American and Chilean Catholic documents.
Next, matters pertaining to Catholicism and Aboriginal education in Canada are fully addressed from two perspectives: a philosophical one, arguing that Catholic schools embodied a worldview that separated people from place and approached the non-human world as a resource; and the Catholic religious view, narrating how Catholic Boards of Education in Ontario are working with elders and communities in an effort to make faith meaningful to Aboriginal communities. The study includes an analysis of the social pedagogical dimension of changes in the Catholic Church and the intersection of Catholicism, Marxism, Humanism, psychoanalysis, and new understandings of human sexuality that led to cultural artistic expressions that carried a complex political pedagogical vision with implications for curriculum.
The collection is concluded by a reconstruction of the varying papers and a reflection on their points of intersection, opposition, and configuration.
This collection will be the first of its kind. There are relevant books on aspects or analytical components of the theme, but not specifically on the theme. The case studies will be published for the first time as well.

The Network for Excellence in Higher Education (NEHE) was created in early 2012. It gathers the 25 persons who participated in a jury formed by the French Agency for National Research (ANR) to identify the most innovative education projects in higher education in France. The network held its first meeting in Paris in May 2012 and decided to draft a foundation document calling for a new excellence in higher education (below), to draft a book on this theme to be published in 2014, and to contribute altogether to the 2014 AIPU Conference in Mons.
The case for a new type of "excellence" in higher education
Many countries and universities nowadays are proclaiming excellence as the ultimate goal to be attained. Excellence, which is the main focus here, essentially refers to a pronounced elitism: the idea is to place as high as possible in international rankings by hiring the best professors - based on their number of research publications - or even Nobel prize winners or others with prestigious prizes to their credit, in order to then attract the best students. This results in a sort of selected matching up, reserved for the select few, which leads to two classes of universities: those close to the top in international rankings, such as those of Shanghai or the Times Higher Education, and the rest.
This “elitist excellence” henceforth has to be supplemented by another that is now “social and societal.” Social, in the sense that excellence should not be reserved for a small number of professors and students, much to the contrary; and societal, in so far as university studies end up providing students with the skills and knowledge they need to be key and conscientious agents in solving the major problems that our society currently faces. This type of excellence serves to provide students with “education and training that will teach them, and through them others, to respect the great harmonies of their natural environment and of life itself,” as stated in the Magna Charta Universitatum signed on 18 September 1988 by a number of rectors of European universities. Lastly, in this pursuit of excellence, one of the missions (and certainly not the least) of teachers and researchers is to is to elucidate major contemporary problems for society at large.
But how can this new type of excellence be achieved? First, by adopting a multi-dimensional approach. Excellence deals not only with university research objectives, but also with their instructional vocation and, thirdly, with service to the community. The European Commission’s U-Multirank classification is thus of interest in light of those 3 factors. Next is the notion that excellence means acknowledging certain values that must be defended on behalf of the common interest. This calling constitutes part of the realm of higher education in Europe. The Louvain Declaration (2009) makes this point very explicitly but, in reality, it often tends to take a back seat relative to the goals of economic development and adequate preparation for employment. Emphasis must likewise be given to the concept of the curriculum, an integrated set of course programmes, pathways to learning and instruction, in the interest of the students. One must also, in this search for social and societal excellence, recognise that innovation is a determinant means, even if not the only one. Finally, we must implement those tools that serve to measure progress made in pursuing excellence as we have defined it, in order to encourage, motivate and, in the last instance, assess the results of such efforts.
As one can see, there are two very different visions of excellence. Pushed to the extreme, the first is as risk of producing a type of higher education that is largely utilitarian and of creating pointless competition between universities. It is also based on a notion as yet unproven: that the best teachers are those with the most publications. In this context, it is highly tempting to devote more resources to the universities with the best “performance,” to the detriment of the rest. One may wonder, moreover, about the viability of aiming to provide access to higher education for 50% of an age group while bearing this notion of elitist excellence in mind. These two objectives are obviously incompatible.
Social and societal excellence is something else altogether. It aims to provide all students, without exception, with the means to achieve their own level of excellence, which cannot help but be of benefit to the collective well-being. It forces teachers and researchers to focus not on their careers and their publications, but on the quality of their teaching. The quality of instruction will certainly be dependent of the quality of research, but research conducted solely for its own ends risks being far removed from teaching. This new type of excellence also enables us to train students - and future citizens - who are more responsible in terms of advancing the common good and social co-existence, and who are more committed to solving the problems of tomorrow’s society, rather than being merely preoccupied with obtaining a diploma just so as to get the best paying job possible. And lastly, in the long term, it enables those countries that embrace it to better overcome their problems and to take part in a new era of higher education that is more open to everyone and to the world at hand.
