Eric Vega, Ph.D.
Thursday, March 6th at 11:00 a.m.
Humanities Hall, Room 201
Dr. Eric Vega, assistant professor of sociology and member of La Sierra University's Gender Studies program, will speak about his research on coping and caring among transnational Latina mothers, many of whom survive in the United States in order to provide for their children back home. His findings supports existing research on religiosity among transnational Latino fathers, and extends understandings about the expression of faith and the significance of prayer among transnational mothers as they negotiate resilient conceptions of gender in dynamic and often difficult economic, political and cultural environments. Worship credit provided.
The "Women & the Word" breakout worship series is hosted by the Women's Resource Center in coordination with the LSU Spiritual Life Office. It aims to examine the Christian tradition, Adventist beliefs and practices, and scriptural exegesis from a feminist perspective, helping students, faculty and staff to find themselves in the stories of women in Scripture, church history and contemporary society. By engaging in reflective conversation, we aim to consider new ways of seeing, believing, and being that deepen the spiritual journey and faith of each participant.
