Sixth Triennial Conference on the History of Women Religious entitled, "Crossing Boundaries: Comparative Perspectives on the History of Women Religious," June 27-30, 2004. Hosted by the Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica at the Atchison (Kansas) Heritage Conference Center (40 minutes from Kansas City International Airport). The conference features research from historians and scholars from seven countries and will focus on a variety of perspectives crossing the "boundaries" of race, class, ethnicity, and religious orders, as well as the "boundaries" of geography, time, social conrtext and academic disciplines. Special events include keynote presentations from Elizabeth Rapley and Anne Butler. The conference will also feature an "early cut version" of the forthcoming PBS documentary film, "Sisters of Selma: Bearing Witness for Change" by award-winning director Jayasri Hart, who is preparing the film for the 40th anniversary of the 1965 Selma marches. The director and some of the sisters featured in the film will attend the special event.
