Refugee Stories: Changing the Narrative
Wednesday 20 June 2018: 9.30am at Heythrop College, 23 Kensington Square, London W8 5HN
Sarah Teather (Director of Jesuit Refugee Service UK)
Professor David Herd (University of Kent)
Dr Joshua Ralston (University of Edinburgh)
Dr Liam Hayes (CAFOD, UK)
Besides the stories told about refugees, there are also the stories waiting to be told by refugees. Who takes the time to encounter those seeking asylum? Where is the refugee’s voice? Who listens? What is their story?
This conference will be the fruit of a unique collaboration between the Heythrop Institute for Religion and Society and the Jesuit Refugee Service UK, bringing together academics working in theology and related disciplines, practitioners serving refugees, and – most importantly – those seeking asylum themselves.
A day conference. Details from Heythrop College
