Laidlaw Research Seminar - Dr Leopoldo A. Sánchez
Theologies of Migration and a Vocational Proposal

Contemporary reflection on im/migration can benefit from a theology of vocation. A vocational lens serves as a critical and constructive tool to examine hospitality, legal, and relational approaches to migration today. After offering a brief survey of current theological and ethical approaches to migration, Dr Leo Sánchez will argue for a complementary vocational approach to migration as the most comprehensive proposal for guiding our thinking and action concerning migrant neighbours. He will deal with the strengths and limits of this proposed vocational approach

The seminar will be held at the Henderson Campus and via zoom here. Meeting ID: 813 8038 4263
