Global History and Catholicism

The Cushwa Center conference “Global History and Catholicism” will convene April 4–6, 2019, at the University of Notre Dame. The conference will explore the intersection between global history and the history of the Roman Catholic Church, one of the world’s most global institutions. Papers and panels will consider the ways in which globalism has shaped the Catholic Church, but also explore the impact of Catholic actors and entities on globalism from the late 18th century to the present.

Jeremy Adelman, the Henry Charles Lea Professor of History at Princeton University, will deliver the conference’s keynote address. Adelman is in the process of writing a global history of Latin America.

Registration and more information on the conference program, lodging, and travel will be posted at this webpage in November 2018.
