First International Symposium on Jesuit Studies - Exploring Jesuit Distinctiveness

10 June, 2015 - 14 June, 2015 - Cambridge, MA - Boston College - Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies

The Jesuit tradition is an intriguing prism through which to look at many aspects of the Society of Jesus’ history and influence, whether explicitly through comparative studies, or by the grouping of studies around a given topical, chronological, or geographic focus. Scholarship on the Society of Jesus engages a staggering array of disciplines like art history, theology, literary
studies, the history of science, international law, military history, performing arts, and
archeology. From another perspective, scholarship on Jesuits and their works intersects with many historical periods like the Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, and the Enlightenment among others.
The first symposium theme is the distinctiveness of Jesuits and their ministries. It will focus on the quiddias Jesuitica, the specifically Jesuit way of proceeding in which Jesuits and their colleagues operated in the last half a millennium from historical, geographical, social, and cultural perspectives. What has changed and adapted itself to different times and situations? What has remained constant transcending time and place, infusing the apostolic works and lives of Jesuits with the charism on which the Society of Jesus was founded and developed?
Proposals for individual papers and panels (max. 250 words) along with a narrative CV (max.150 words) must be submitted to the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies (iajs@bc.edu) before 31 May 2014.

Taxation and Trust: Legitimizing Redistributive Tax Policies

7 May, 2015 - 8 May, 2015 - Antwerp, Belgium - University of Antwerp - City Campus Hof van Liere Prinsstraat 13 / 13B 2000 Antwerp
Organizer: UCSIA - University Centre Saint-Ignatius Antwerp.

Tax systems in virtually all Western democracies are faced with a crisis of legitimacy. Citizens and corporations appear less willing than ever to pay taxes, a high-tech industry has been created to aid in the circumvention of taxes, and even the tax collector sometimes seems uncertain as to the proper end and means of taxation. According to political scientist David Easton, our decreased willingness to pay taxes is a symptom of a weakening of diffuse support for the political authorities and even worse for the political regime. But even though there is a weakening trust, Easton notes that we might still be willing to pay taxes for specific purposes that we agree with or that we perceive as profitable to ourselves. Yet the very essence of taxation consists in collecting state revenue in bulk, revenue which is then reallocated in light of collective decisions that are made by the people’s representatives as a whole, rather than by the individual contributors.
Are collective institutions still able to generate a sufficient level of trust to keep this mechanism going? And if not, what are the key factors that contribute to this decline in trust? And what explains the different levels of trust in different countries? Are there “intra-fiscal” factors at play, that is, should we primarily look at the properties of tax systems and the differences between different tax systems? Or do the institutional structures and political ideologies of different countries explain different levels of trust? Of course, we should also take stock of the impact of economic and cultural globalization.
We propose to look at five different aspects of the interaction between the taxing political authorities and the taxed citizens and corporations. These five items will form the basis of five different sessions at the workshop. - Inequality between citizens
- Societal culture and civic solidarity
- The institutional environment at the national and international level
- Political parties and ideologies: The key question here is
- Corporations

Science Shaping the World of Tomorrow: Scientific Imagination and Development of Society

18 March, 2015 - 20 March, 2015 - Antwerp, Belgium - University of Antwerp - City Campus Hof van Liere Prinsstraat 13 / 13B 2000 Antwerp
Organizer: UCSIA - University Centre Saint-Ignatius Antwerp.

We understand imagination in relation to the scientific context as the art to creatively design, produce, discuss and envisage societal alternatives for the future. In that sense it opens a window on the future and constitutes a source for societal development. Placed within a broader context, imagination processes play a role in the development of sciences and in the construction of societies, as well as in the interaction between sciences and societies, the former stimulating the further development of the latter, and the latter providing an environment in which the former thrives. Sciences and societies shape and further one another’s imagination processes.
The study of the creative and productive use of imagination at the intersection of science and society in view of building and shaping the future constitutes the main purpose of this workshop. This reflection will be stimulated by focusing on four subthemes:
- Imagination at work in the sciences
- Sciences as part of the imaginary of societies
- Imaginaries of the future shaping contemporary reality
- Politics of imagination
The application deadline for submissions is October 31, 2014.

Given their engagement with human dignity, the promotion of economic justice, and the advancement of peace, Catholic colleges and universities are uniquely positioned to advance the vision of this seminal document. Join ACCU at our 2014 Annual Meeting to celebrate the joy and hope of Catholic higher education as it embraces contemporary culture and creates a path to a better future.
