Waaki-Sanctuary

Friday, November 16, 2018 at 11:15am to 1:10pm

Caldwell Hall, 400

The idea of Sanctuary in our time is colored by the politics of human immigration. As contemporary media consumers, we are saturated with threats and security measures originating from alerts about immigration into our neighborhood. Today state borders have restricted and closed the numerous routes blazed by migrants and only wild birds and animals move freely without visas.

Humankind has been in constant movement since the emergence, leaving a oppressive order, seeking a better life, seeking sanctuary.  For our age sanctuary can be not only far across the politic border but the hope we carry in our soul. Sanctuary is the best we can be at the moment, and in the future.
