Presented as part of the Theology in the City 2019 conference.

Richard Kearney, professor of philosophy at Boston College, is also the co-director of the Guestbook Project, whose mission is “to promote peace building through storytelling” through narrative exchange and imagination. Although stories can divide people, they can also unite people. Narrative models are thus powerful tools “for advancing peace and reconciliation.”
