The Love of Many Lands: An Augustinian Theology of Migrant Identity

April 8, 2014

Matthew J.P. Tan
Visiting Assistant Professor of Catholic Studies & CWCIT Research Fellow
DePaul University

This talk looks at the issue of multiplicity of identity from a theological perspective, specifically through the lens of Augustinian theology. It attempts to show how postmodern theories of identity can help us understand how multiplicity affects more than just migrants, but also show how theology goes beyond the limitations of postmodern migrant theory. The talk concludes by exploring the possibilities of coalescing Deleuze & Bonaventure.
