A panel of scholars will join the Cushwa Center and Matteo Binasco in celebrating the publication of his book, Roman Sources for the History of American Catholicism 1763–1939 (Notre Dame Press, spring 2018). Dr. Binasco researched and authored Roman Sources during his tenure as the Cushwa Center's postdoctoral fellow in Rome from 2014 to 2017. The volume profiles the organization and relevant collections in 59 archives and libraries in Rome, and will provide researchers from the United States and elsewhere an overview of the rich resources of Roman repositories for American Catholic studies.
Panelists will offer commentary on the text and its significance for transnational research in American Catholic history and related fields.
The panel discussion and a reception to follow are free and open to the public.
