Welcome to H-Catholic, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-Catholic is devoted to promoting the discussion and study of the history and culture of Catholicism.

H-Catholic is currently looking for new editors to take an active, leadership role in developing new resources and features for the field. We are looking for editors, bloggers, contributors, as well people interesting in building open access resources such as syllabi collections and databases of research archives. If you have ideas for H-Catholic, we H-net has the technical expertise to build it. Please contact Patrick Cox at vp-net@mail.h-net.msu.edu if you are interesting in lending a hand.

Women Chroniclers and Historians in the Renaissance

Renaissance women, most of them nuns, wrote histories and memoirs.  This panel will explore convent chronicles and other forms of historical writing by women during the Renaissance and Early Modern Period.  In particular we hope to highlight women whose chronicles and histories pre-date the Reformation.

Please send proposals (150-word abstracts), along with brief narrative CVs, to Kathleen Comerford, kcomerfo@georgiasouthern.edu, by May 16, 2014.


CFP - ACHA 2015 - Session on Catholic political participation

I am organizing a panel on Catholic political participation and Catholic citizenship for the ACHA meeting in New York in January 2015.

I am working on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Latin American discussions of how Catholics should participate in civic life--especially as they navigate through an increasingly secular political environment.
