Location: Morris Inn

NOTE: This conference has been postponed. Further details can be found at http://www.nollconference.com/ as they become available.


This conference honors the career of Mark Noll by reflecting on his work in the history of American Christianity, while also looking forward to new directions in the field. Panels on American Christianity in the colonial era, the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the recent history of world Christianity anchor the conference. Senior scholars will gather in round table discussions to reflect on the evangelical mind and on the writing of grand narratives in American religious history. The conference features a keynote address by David Hempton, an interview with Noll hosted by Books & Culture editor John Wilson, and Noll's own reflections.

The conference concludes with the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism's Seminar in American Religion, which explores John McGreevy's latest work, American Jesuits and the World (Princeton, 2016).
