A Conference on the History of American Christianity | In Honor of Mark Noll

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 roundtable discussions to reflect on the evangelical mind and on the writing of grand narratives in American religious history. The conference features an interview with Noll hosted by John Wilson along with Noll's own reflections and a keynote address by David Hempton.

The conference concludes with the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism's Seminar in American Religion, which explores Judith Weisenfeld's latest work, New World A-Coming: Black Religion and Racial Identity during the Great Migration (NYU Press, 2017).
