Presenters are sought for a panel submission on American Catholics and Immigration in the 20th century for the American Catholic Historical Association's meeting at the annual American Historical Association conference, to be held in Chicago, January 5-9, 2012. In keeping with the ACHA's call for papers, scholarship that considers the transnational or the local, Catholic progressivism, material culture, or the role of the laity in relation to the institutional church is particularly welcome. Potential topics can include: transnational Catholic migrant communities, Catholic social action and the care of immigrants, church policy on immigration and adaptation, immigration and labor, and more. The ACHA particularly encourages graduate students to apply. Potential presenters should send a 250 word abstract of their presentation, including a title, and a one-page CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 22, 2011.
