Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Monday August 20, 2012


Dr. K. Kale Yu, Assistant Professor of History, presented at the International Association for Mission Studies Conference in Wycliffe College, Toronto, Canada (August 15-19). This year's theme was "Migration, Human Dislocation, and the Good News: Margins as the Center in Christian Mission."

Dr. Yu's paper, “Finding God in the Margins: The Experience of Dislocated European Immigrants in America,” examines the role ethnicity and culture played in the evangelization of European-language communities in the United States, specifically German, Norwegian, and Swedish immigrants in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
