A Research Conference: October 16-18, 2014

On October 16-18, 2014, Loyola University Chicago will host a conference to mark the bicentennial of the restoration of the Society of Jesus following its suppression from 1773-1814. It will also mark a century of women’s education at Loyola-Mundelein (1914-2014).

The conference aims at locating works–of both restored Jesuits and their colleagues from women’s religious orders–within the specific experiential context of building an American nation. The stories of these men and women provide studies in what Thomas Tweed has termed Crossing and Dwelling (2006): refugees from European exclusions; transatlantic immigrants; multilingual and transnational identities; settlers in ethnic urban cores; boundary-dwellers in frontier peripheries.

As the bicentennial year approaches, this page seeks to facilitate new discussion and investigation of Jesuit history through shared sources, questions, and ideas.

Irish Diaspora: SJ-RSCJ-BVM connections

New Perspectives on the Irish DiasporaFrom Ellen Skerrett, “The Irish of Chicago’s Hull-House Neighborhood”; in New Perspectives on the Irish Diaspora, ed. Charles Fanning (2000).

     “Mother Margaret Galwey, RSCJ, a native of County Cork, Ireland, welcomed the opportunity to establish a foundation in the Jesuit parish. … Although there were obvious class differences between parishioners and the teaching sisters, the Irish of Holy Family held the Religious of the Sacred Heart in great esteem, as events in August 1860 revealed.

"American Catholicism’s Science Crisis and the Albertus Magnus Guild, 1953-1969"

Ronald Binzley’s case study of the Albertus Magnus Guild sheds light on two broad questions:

1. How did science education develop in Catholic institutions of higher learning during these years?

2. What did Catholic scientists view as the proper relationship between science and religion?

Binzley expresses the hope that his essay “will help awaken more historians to the real need for additional research on the interactions of American Catholicism and science during the twentieth century.”

From the FRENCH REVOLUTION to the POTAWATOMI TRAIL OF DEATH: St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, RSCJ (1769-1852)

Among the many figures whose transatlantic lives spanned the crossing between anti-clerical Europe and the burgeoning American interior, Rose Philippine Duchesne soars as one of the most dramatic.

ClermontBorn in Grenoble, France, Duchesne had first-hand experience of the French Revolution. After her convent was closed in 1791 she worked for the underground Church.

In 1804, during the Napoleonic era, Duchesne joined the Religious of the Sacred Heart (RSCJ: Religieuses du Sacré-Coeur de Jésus) founded by (St.) Madeleine Sophie Barat.

DuchesneIn 1818, after Napoleon’s defeat (and four years after the Jesuit Restoration), she emigrated to America. There she founded a boarding school for daughters of pioneers in Florissant (near St. Louis), the first free school west of the Missouri. Belgian Jesuits soon joined Duchesne in just one of numerous collaborations between RSCJ’s and SJ’s in both urban cores and frontier peripheries.

"Mundelein in Winter Dress" (1931)
Front page of the January 30, 1931 issue of The Skyscraper, the Mundelein College student newspaper.
The 1930-1931 academic year was Mundelein College’s first and in January 1931 the "Skyscraper" building was just over a year old. Groundbreaking for this art deco Chicago icon had taken place on November 1, 1929, just three days after the Stock Market Crash set off the Great Depression.
After undergoing years of extensive renovations, the Skyscraper Building was rededicated on October 13, 2012.
