Immigration and Social Justice Summer Course
April 10, 2018

The University’s department of Philosophy and Religious Studies will offer a summer course titled, “People, Borders, Walls: Immigration and Social Justice.” The course will be offered in the May term, which runs from May 21 – June 9, 2018, on Mondays and Wednesday from 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Against the backdrop of current conversations regarding immigration, this course will explore the movement of people across borders. The course will examine perspectives which shape rhetoric regarding immigration, including asylum seekers, refugees, and immigrants. Participants will be provided with a framework for addressing philosophical and theological issues related to the rights of passage, including an interdisciplinary examination of the legal, economic, and political aspects of movement across borders. The course will also include a service learning component in partnership with community organizations working with immigrant communities.
