About the Course

Welcome to our classroom blog! This will be a space where students enrolled in the Multifaith Perspectives on Global Displacement course at the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary will share their thoughts on displacement.

This course studies contemporary human displacement, migration, and immigration through multifaith and intercultural lenses with an emphasis on conflict, economics, politics, and human development. The course seeks to deepen student’s understandings of the role of culture and religious communities in the lives of displaced persons.

The first half of the course encourages students to locate their narratives within and/or outside contexts displacement including the intersections of displacement and human movement with religious traditions and spiritual practice. The second half of the course will focus on community engagement and social action around issues of displacement. Students will practice public scholarship and hear from guest speakers and faith practitioners working with displaced communities.

The views expressed on this blog are not necessarily those of the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Presbyterian Mission Agency, or churches/organizations the individual students are involved in.
