    Girlhood and the Making of American Catholicism

    This talk will be led by by Monica Mercado, Ph.D., from Colgate University, where she is affiliated with the programs in women's studies and museum studies. Her current book project, The Young Catholic: Girlhood and the Making of American Catholicism, focuses on the 19th-century explosion of convent schools across the United States, and looks to these women's spaces to unpack an archive of white girlhood.

    An assistant professor of history at Colgate, she received a B.A. from Barnard College and earned her A.M. and Ph.D. in History at the University of Chicago.

    This event is part of the College’s celebration of Women’s History Month. It is sponsored by the Gender and Women’s Studies Program, Lectures Committee and Sanzone Center for Catholic Studies and Theological Reflection. For more information, contact Farha Ternikar at [email protected].
