American Catholic History: A Media Round-up


 Pete Cajka

American Catholic historians have been active out in the field as of late, doing interviews, panels, and lectures. We have an embarrassment of riches! Thankfully the material is available online. Here are a few recent endeavors. This media round-up includes Robert Orsi, Daniel Williams, Timothy Matovina, Eugene McCarraher, Kristy Naban-Warren, Leslie Woodcock Tentler, Samuel Moyn, John McGreevy, and Thomas Sugrue. American Catholic historians (and American Catholic history) have appeared at the John C. Danforth Center on American Politics at the Washington University in St. Louis, Religion and Politics, the Cushwa Center at Notre Dame, the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study, and the Journal of American History podcast. Our thanks go out to all these institutions and publications.
