Q&A with Eric Bain-Selbo and Terry Shoemaker

Q&A with Eric Bain-Selbo and Terry Shoemaker

There are plenty of topics and questions that are appealing, but we’re particularly interested to see work that explores race, gender, emerging sports, individualized sport, global perspectives, and even transnational comparisons.

Q&A with David J. Endres

Perhaps it is obvious, but I believe that we need to know each other’s histories. American Catholics can be pretty tribal—within neighborhoods, parishes, and ethnic communities. But I think that we can benefit from the experiences of others, no matter our backgrounds.

Sociologists like Margaret Archer have commented on the lack of analytical terms for designating the components of culture. Yet Dawson’s approach to culture provides those terms.

Q&A with Michael Calabrese

Q&A with Michael Calabrese

The poet writes on diverse registers; he strives to be realistic in his depiction of what goes on in a bar at 9AM—something, by the way, that hasn’t changed much in nearly seven hundred years nor from one culture to another.

Q&A with Ulrich Lehner & Shaun Blanchard

Q&A with Ulrich Lehner & Shaun Blanchard

Church history and historical theology have too often neglected to pay adequate attention to the diversity of voices after the end of the Middle Ages. We have many studies about medieval women and lay people, but hardly anything about their role and influence and participation in the post-Trent church.
