The fellowship research grants encourage and support faculty who wish to incorporate the Catholic Jesuit intellectual and cultural tradition into their academic repertoire. As stated in its vision statement, the ICTC “invites the community to renew the Catholic intellectual tradition of engagement at the crossroads where faith and reason, religion and culture, church and world meet—through academic research, reflection and dialogue.”
Recipients of the ICTC Faculty Research Fellowships
Recipient of the ICTC Faculty Course Development Fellowship:
“…What the Faculty Fellowship does is assist faculty in retrieving, renewing and transmitting the best of our Catholic intellectual tradition,” says Jeanette Rodriguez, PhD, newly appointed ICTC director. “As a university, what we’re trying to do is engage—vigorously and purposefully—to diligently strengthen and reserve the Catholic character of our Jesuit Catholic mission at Seattle University. We’re talking about the intersection … between the intellectual, the spiritual and the moral.”
Professor Rodriguez is a leading theologian in the fields of religion and culture, religion and social conflict, theologies of liberation, U.S. Hispanic theology, feminist theology, cultural memory, Christology and theology of inculturation. She served as ICTC interim director since 2019.
Rodriguez continues, “… I like to think the Faculty Fellowship Program allows faculty an opportunity to connect the great, creative and justice-oriented work they are already doing with the conversation partner of the Catholic tradition in its broadest sense,” she says.
“Whether you’re doing economics, art, literature, history or education … I think in every discipline, the Catholic intellectual tradition has something to contribute or can be a viable conversation partner to the faculty.”
