March is Women’s History Month, so why not celebrate a pioneering woman who was an historian: Catherine Ann Cline, distinguished scholar of Great Britain in the twentieth century and former chair of the History Department at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. She was especially interested in the rise of the British Labour Party and the roots of the British appeasement of Fascism in the wake of the controversial Treaty of Versailles that ended the First World War.

Dear Allison and Psyche,
Thank you both very much for your recommendations! They are most helpful and I truly appreciate you taking the time to help me with this research.
Thanks and kind regards,
In addition to the sources mentioned above (Malinda Maynor Lowery's work is phenomenal!), here are some classic studies of Indigenous sacred traditions in the Chesapeake region during the colonial era:
Patricia Galloway, ed., Southeastern Ceremonial Complex: Artifacts and Analysis (1989)
Charles Hudson and Carmen Chaves Tesser, eds., Forgotten Centuries: Indians and Europeans in the American South, 1521-1704 (1994)
Gregory Waselkov, Peter Wood, and Tom Hatley, eds., Powhatan's Mantle: Indians in the Colonial Southeast (1989/2006, 2nd ed.)
I would look into work by Malinda Maynor Lowery and also the very recent dissertation of Ashley Minner - UMD, who works on the Lumbee who migrated from NC to Baltimore.

How do you come out in a religious community that loves you conditionally? This question is explored in the latest episode of Sexing History - entited The Stained Glass Closet - which focuses on the experiences of three gay men who were priests or seminarians in the St. Louis diocese beginning in the 1990s. Their overlapping stories, their friendships, their faith, and the ways in which they came out to themselves and each other within Catholic institutions, speak to the intertwined histories of desire and devotion.
