Pre-reading materials = An Ignatian Discussion On Immigration

Cincinnati has been the locus of migrants and immigrants since the nineteenth century, enriching the city's culture but sometimes resulting in friction and hostility. Examining historical examples of diversity allows discussants to reflect on issues that affect us today without invoking contentious catch phrases. By interrogating texts and artifacts related to experiences of migration, participants can retrace Ignatius's footsteps, moving outward "both to share and to learn" while more deeply committing to the common good in a diverse, complex and interdependent society.
