Mandate of LST. These intensive courses which may be taken for credit
or audit are taught by visiting professors from other Asian
theological faculties. Contact LST Dean?s Office for details.
BUDDHISM (Fr. Noel Sheth, S.J.)
Buddhism is a major world force today because of its continuing
contribution to Asian history and cultures, and of the wide appeal of
its solutions to problems of modern life, its contributions to peace
and ecological balance, and its liberative thrust towards equality and
justice. The course discusses the following: (a) the life experience
of the Buddha and the basic doctrines of Buddhism, (b) its
inculturation into different Asian cultures, (c) points of convergence
and divergence between Buddhism and Christianity, and (d) challenges
to Buddhism in today?s world.
Fr. Sheth is former President and Professor of Indian Philosophies and
Religions at Jnana-Deepa Vidyapeeth, Pontifical Institute of
Philosophy and Religion, Pune, India. A much awarded scholar for his
M.A. (University of Pune) and Ph.D. in Sanskrit (Harvard University),
he holds positions in international professional organizations and has
published works in many journals in India and abroad.
INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION IN ASIA (Fr. Denis Kim, S.J.)
This course aims to deepen students? understanding of international
migration in preparation for migrant ministry in Asia. Migration makes
us rethink changes in demography and labor market, issues related to
citizenship, nationhood, race and ethnicity, and consequently the
Church?s ministry beyond national boundaries.
The course is composed of three parts: (a) an overview the historical
development of international migration especially in Asia, (b) an
examination of thematic issues related to politics, development,
gender, and multiculturalism, focusing on the Philippines and East
Asia, and (c) an exploration of Church?s contribution to the promotion
of migrants? rights.
Fr. Kim is a Korean Jesuit with a Ph.D. in Sociology from the
University of San Diego and is currently Assistant Professor of the
Department of Sociology in Sogang University, Seoul, Korea. His
primary research and published work cover civil society, religion and
