37th Annual Nash Memorial Lecture

Discerning a Path Toward Hope: A Liberal Arts University's Journey with Omar Khadr

Dr. Arlette Zinck, Associate Professor, English, The King's University

In September of 2008 students and faculty at The King's University, Edmonton were introduced to the Omar Khadr case. They were told that it was hopeless. In the seven years that followed, the community at King's wrestled with that hopelessness and learned a few lessons in the process. This is a story about how a university community learned how to connect their faith to their learning and their theory to their practice in a way that directed them toward hope. It is a story that took members of the community to Guantanamo Bay, and into a series of Canadian prisons. Ultimately, what began as an effort to teach King's students ended with Omar Khadr becoming a King's student.
