Event Details

Dislocation, Justice and Renewal: A Comparative Study of Three Exiles

Please join Dr. Jan Flaska, Dean of Spiritual and Ethical Life at Deerfield Academy, for a presentation on forced migrations in a variety of places and times with a view towards injustice and resilience. In this talk, he will consider Lakota in South Dakota; Jews in Central Europe; and the Kanienkeha:ka Mohwak community near Montreal.

Dr. Flaska holds familiar and perhaps formative roles in the community by teaching, coaching and supporting the spiritual lives of students. Taking great interest in the spiritual formation of adolescents, Jan studied and continues to explore the impact of technology on personal adolescent spirituality. Jan's self-proclaimed soul-mate is Teresa of Avila who was both deeply rooted in the world she knew and way ahead of her time.
