Soup with Substance to address human trafficking, Jan. 24

Dr. Christopher Gooding, visiting assistant professor of theology, will speak on his new book

January is Human Trafficking Prevention Month. In recognition of this, the first Soup with Substance of the semester will feature Dr. Christopher Gooding, visiting assistant professor of theology in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences and author of “Beyond Slavery: Christian Theology and Rehabilitation from Human Trafficking.”

Soup with Substance will be held Wednesday, Jan. 24, at noon in Raynor Library’s Beaumier Suites.

In Gooding’s newly released book, he examines the lack of research regarding the moral issues survivors of human trafficking face. Drawing on over 50 interviews with survivors, aftercare workers and human trafficking specialists from his fieldwork in India, Gooding examines the moral and theological questions that arise during rehabilitation.

Gooding discussed his book with Marquette Today as part of the Marquette Bookshelf series.

A light lunch of soup and bread will be provided.
