The following courses have been ADDED to the course offerings for spring 2014:
[EL] WCHR/JUST/PRAC 805/705 Immigration and Storefront Churches: State Policies, Social Resistance and New Theology
This online course examines the life, experiences, theologies, and practices of resistance of immigrants and immigrant churches in the United States. It will enable students to appreciate the sufferings, social actions, liturgies, and theologies of immigrants in this country, the impact of state policies on their wellbeing, and the practices of resistance of host-community churches against hardline government immigrant policies.
The course has three parts: (a) it begins with a study of World Christianity to inform students about the faith contexts and theologies of immigrant Christians in their home countries; (b) in this part of the course we will investigate the life experiences and sufferings of immigrants, government immigration policies and programs, and the responses of faith-based organizations to the plight of immigrants, and (c) finally, the course examines the everyday forms of resistance, liturgical practices, and theologies and social ethics of immigrant churches and communities to reveal how they are responding, resisting, adapting, and challenging the conditions and hardships they face in the United States.
