U.S. Catholic Historian
War and Peace
For thirty-five years the U.S. Catholic Historian has published theme-based issues relevant to the history of American Catholicism. An upcoming issue will address the theme of war and peace. Contributions could include, but are not limited to, studies of the following:
· Catholic involvement in conflicts as officers, soldiers, nurses, and chaplains.
I would like to organize a panel for next year's Society of Civil War Historians Conference, which will be held in Pittsburgh from May 31-June 2, 2018. My paper will focus on lived religion among Catholic soldiers and chaplains.
Religion, Science, Technology Panel
Deadline for submissions: October 1, 2017
American Academy of Religion Western Region
Location: Berkeley, California
Dates: 23-25 March 2018
Religion, Science, Technology, and Kindness
I hope to organize a panel for the 2018 Southern Association for Women Historians (SAWH) Conference scheduled for June 7-10, 2018 at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The tentative title for the panel is “Power through Print: Periodical Production and Consumption.” My paper will deal with the women contributors to the AME Church Review, the quarterly publication of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Other papers might consider women’s involvement in either periodical production or consumption as vehicles for expressing resistance or claiming rights.
