Global Social Justice Summer Research Symposium

You are warmly invited to attend in-person or virtually our annual Global Social Justice Research Symposium, hosted by the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching & Service (CSJ) and the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs

This year’s Symposium will take place the afternoon of Friday, September 23. Depending on public health protocols, we warmly invite student, alumni, community, faculty, and family guests to join in person in the Healy Family Student Center Social Room on Georgetown University’s Hilltop campus. An updated schedule is forthcoming.

Our Symposium highlights the research endeavors of our Education and Social Justice Research (ESJ) Fellows (new window) from 2022, CSJ’s Andretta Fellow (new window) from 2022, and more.

  • The ESJ is a 12+ years old exemplary collaboration between the Berkley Center and CSJ. 
    • Our 2022 ESJ fellows conducted fieldwork in-person, following all local and Georgetown public health guidelines:
      • Sarah Craig (SFS’23) conducted field research at our Jesuit peer, Spring Hill College, in Mobile, Alabama.
      • Kartikeya Uniyal (GU-Q’23) based his field research at St. John’s Beaumont outside of London, England, and visited several Jesuit primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom.
      • Viktoria Hengelbrok (COL’23) was based in Lisbon, Portugal with a wonderful host, Fundação Gonçalo da Silveira ONGD Jesuíta and conducted research there.

Our student researchers have conducted compelling, timely, interdisciplinary research under significant constraints and precautions. Their creativity and resilience has been truly remarkable. We are so proud of them and are eager for them to share with you where they are in the research process.
