The International Jesuit Scholars Program is designed to bring Jesuit faculty from colleges and universities around the world to Holy Cross for a semester or two each year. A joint initiative of the College’s Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture and the Holy Cross Jesuit community, it is designed to give Jesuits from many different countries the time and resources to pursue scholarship, to collaborate with American scholars and to build a better sense of the Jesuit global community. Visiting scholars teach one course per semester in their disciplinary area or provide other service to the College.
This year’s International Visiting Jesuit Fellows are: Rev. James Corkery, S.J., a theologian at the Milltown Institute of Philosophy and Theology in Ireland; Rev. Lawrence Daka, S.J., a philosophy professor from Arrupe College in Harare, Zimbabwe; and Rev. Oliver Rafferty, S.J., a historian from the British Jesuit Province, recently assigned to Guyana.
