About this Event
RSE Workshop: Teaching Catholicism and Literature in 21st Century Scotland, 13th-14th September 2019, University of Glasgow
University of Glasgow Cloisters, Room 356, Gilbert Scott Building, Main Gilmorehill Campus, University of Glasgow
Following the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Education Act in Scotland – which offered Catholic Schools the opportunity to become state-funded for the first time – this event brings together teachers, academics, students, and pupils to consider the place of Catholicism in the curriculum at secondary and tertiary levels. There are of course, competing views on what a Catholic educational curriculum should look like and how (or if) it should be taught in multi-cultural Scotland. This workshop will provide a rounded view on a crucial and contested area of educational provision in Scotland.
