The Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism, in conjunction with Northwestern University, invites paper proposals for an international conference on the Lived History of Vatican II. The conference will convene at the University of Notre Dame April 24-27, 2014. We seek scholars and advanced graduate students who will present close-grained local histories of the immediate Council era and its aftermath in a particular diocese or region. Preference will be given to proposals that focus on how attempts to implement Vatican II interacted with specific local contexts to shape the development of a key element of Catholic life such as worship, ecumenical relations, religious or family life, or social activism in a given locale. Funding is available to defray the cost of lodging, meals, and conference fees of those who submit successful proposals. Please submit a one-page proposal with the presentation title, synopsis, and brief author vitae to Kathleen Sprows Cummings at Cushwa.firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2013.
