The Lived History of Vatican II
In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council, the Cushwa Center has launched a major research project designed to produce the first comparative, international, lived history of Catholicism in the Vatican II era.
We have enlisted researchers who will write close-grained local social histories of the immediate Council era and its aftermath in fifteen select dioceses spanning every continent.
The project, which is funded in part by a contribution from the Alumnae of Northwestern University, will culminate in an international conference on the Lived History of Vatican II at Notre Dame April 24-26, 2014, as well as the subsequent publication of a coauthored project volume.
