Alberto La Rosa Rojas

Alberto La Rosa Rojas is a fifth year ThD student at Duke Divinity School.

His experience as an immigrant from Callao, Peru informs and fuels his doctoral research which engages the ethical and theological dimensions of migration and the human longing for home. In particular, Alberto’s work explores how certain theological visions of home which helped to fuel and justify the conquest of the Americas in 1492, still function today in fueling anti-immigrant sentiment in the North American context. His work attempts to weave together insights from both the reformed theological tradition as well as from Latinx Theology.

Prior to coming to Duke, he earned an MDiv from Western Theological Seminary and a BA from Trinity Christian College.
