At the Cushwa Center's international conference Global History and Catholicism, Jeremy Adelman (Princeton University) will deliver the opening keynote address, "Catholicism and Globalization: Coincidence or Causation?" scheduled for Thursday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the McKenna Hall Auditorium.

Adelman is the Henry Charles Lea Professor of History and Director of the Global History Lab at Princeton University. Currently, he is working on two books. Latin America: A Global History tells the story of what we now call Latin America as an on-going regional site for worldmaking and integration from 1492 to our days. He is also working on Earth Hunger, a study of how writers and artists, diplomats and ecologists, have been wrestling with the meaning of global inter-dependence and attitudes to strangers from the 1850s to the present.

This and all other conference sessions are open to the public. To preview the full schedule, visit
