Reading Exodus 1–3 with Indian migrant workers in Singapore

Congratulations to one of our former students, Winston Chin, who has had an article published in the journal Practical Theology. Winston, who lives in Singapore, has developed work he originally undertook for his dissertation on our distance learning programme.  ‘Reading Exodus 1–3 with Indian migrant workers in Singapore: a dialogic approach‘ is now available online and will be in the next print issue. The study investigated how Indian Christian low-wage migrant workers in Singapore responded to the text of Exodus 1–3 in light of their real-life experiences, through a dialogic methodology of contextual bible reading based on Gerald West’s approach of ‘reading with’ marginalized groups.

Study week 22-26 January 2018

21 students gathered in St Andrews on 22 January 2018 for the taught module, ‘Surveillance, Theology, and the Bible’. A further 8 came the study week centred around further developing the skills required for their dissertation. This latter group are now researching and writing dissertations on topics as diverse as, for example, non-invasive prenatal testing , Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and New Testament concepts, the Victorian social reformer Thomas Chalmers and 21st century Christian ministry to people in poverty, and Christian contributions to the recent same-sex marriage public consultation in Australia.
