From 16-18 October 2014, the Joan and Bill Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage at Loyola University Chicago hosted a conference marking the bicentennial of the Restoration of the Society of Jesus in 1814. The conference aimed at locating works–of both restored Jesuits and their colleagues from women’s religious orders–within the specific experiential context of building an American nation. The stories of these men and women provide studies in what Thomas Tweed has termed Crossing and Dwelling (2006): refugees from European exclusions; transatlantic immigrants; multilingual and transnational identities; settlers in ethnic urban cores; boundary-dwellers in frontier peripheries.

For further information on the conference, we recommend the conference blog and the conference tumblr.

Additionally, the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) exhibited a collection of art and artifacts pertaining to the Crossings and Dwellings conference. Please click here to find information about this exhibit, as well as information on LUMA.
