This international conference is the culmination of a a major research project designed to produce the first comparative, international, lived history of Catholicism in the Vatican II era.
In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the opening and closing of the Second Vatican Council, the Cushwa Center enlisted researchers to write close-grained local social histories of the immediate Council era and its aftermath in fifteen select dioceses spanning every continent.
A call for papers is forthcoming, and a coauthored project volume will be produced after the conference. Visit the project page for more information about the conference, researchers, and rationale of the project.
