Re: CFP - Panel on Religion and World War I and new proposed American Academy of Religion Unit on Religion and War

Hello Carlos,

That sounds like a fascinating topic, and one that I'd be very interested in talking to you about more. As I am sure you know, there have been some excellent studies of chaplains in other national armies during WWI, and a study of Portuguese chaplains would be an excellent addition to the literature. Please feel free to email me at jwjeffery@utk.edu.

Best,
Josh
