Alberto La Rosa Rojas
Postdoctoral Associate, Duke University Divinity School
Alberto La Rosa Rojas received his ThD from Duke University Divinity School in January 2022. He is currently a Postdoctoral Associate at Duke University Divinity School where he serves as Advisor to the Presbyterian/Reformed House of Studies and as Fellow of the Hispanic House of Studies. Dr. La Rosa Rojas emigrated from Peru to the United States with his family in 2001. His experience as an immigrant informs and fuels his research which explores the meaning and importance of migration and home for the Christian life in the context of modernity and the colonial history of the Americas. His work offers a vision of flourishing life at the nexus of migration and home and the socio-political negotiations and forms of cultural mestizaje that this nexus produces. His aim is to push the study of theology and ethics of migration to address the challenges migrants face beyond the border as they seek to cultivate a flourishing common life with their non-immigrant neighbors. Dr. La Rosa Rojas is a member of the Reformed Church in America, Holland Classis.
