In-Migration Seminars at the Oxford Centre for Christianity and Culture

13 Jan In-Migration Seminars at the Oxford Centre for Christianity and Culture

On Mondays throughout Hilary Term, the Oxford Centre for Christianity and Culture will be hosting a series of interdisciplinary conversations which aim to shed new light on the unfolding migration context: ‘In-Migration: Cultural and Theological Dialogues on the 21st Century Movements of Peoples’.

In each session, a speaker will make a key input on an aspect of migration, to which scholars associated with the Centre will offer a response informed by Christian theological reflection and/or practice.  Details of the first seminar are as follows:
