The American Catholic Studies Newsletter

As with the last redesign of the newsletter (19 years ago!), we are taking a one-issue hiatus this fall and will return in the spring with a new look. 

Is there something you love about the newsletter, or something you'd love to see changed? Let us know in this short reader survey. Your feedback will be a great help.

Meanwhile, please continue sending us updates about recent publications, jobs, and other information you'd like to share with your colleagues in the field. We'll include it all in the next issue.
