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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interesting in lending a hand.
The conference announced on the cfp below was originally designed for Europeanists, but was opened up to all world areas following multiple requests by non-Europeanists to participate. The cfp has therefore been revised and the deadline extended to August 15, 2018. Applications from anthropologists, legal scholars and political scientists are especially welcome.
With apologies for cross-posting! I thought this may be of interest.

The mixed legacy of heroic sacrifice and bitter division of the American Civil War continues to permeate popular culture and political discourse. As a growing minority in the 1860s, making up about ten percent of the United States population concentrated in the north, Catholics were embedded in this conflict. Their relatively unknown story was recently and expertly addressed by historian William B. Kurtz in his book Excommunicated from the Union: How the Civil War Created a Separate Catholic America.
