Kristin E. Heyer, professor of theological ethics at Boston College, will discuss “Cultivating Civic Kinship: A Christian Ethic of Immigration,” at Gonzaga University’s Flannery Lecture at 6 p.m., Monday, Feb. 26 in the Hemmingson Center Ballroom.
Immigration is often framed in terms of crisis management, rather than by addressing underlying economic, political and cultural contributing factors, Heyer notes in a press release. In the U.S. context in particular, she says, political rhetoric has often masked complicity, abetted human rights violations and betrayed the nation’s founding principles.
“In the Flannery Lecture, I will explore contributions that Scripture and the Catholic social tradition offer in immigration dialogue in light of these realities,” Heyer said.
All are welcome to attend her presentation.
