Offered in Winter 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (other off-campus location) Site

This course will introduce students to three dimensions of hospitality, with the aim of having students construct their own theology of radical hospitality.

  1. The phenomenon of hospitality: something of its history, theology, and practice in the Christian tradition.
  2. The concept of hospitality: attending to some of the 20th century philosophical reflections on the theme.
  3. The concrete practice of hospitality as it is described by guest lecturers and experienced in a pre-arranged hospitality practicum.

Sessions will alternate between guest lectures and seminar-style discussions. Students will participate in, and write a reflection paper on, a hospitality practicum, review one contemporary theology of hospitality, and write one research paper.
