In a few weeks, I’ll be presenting my research about the Mennonites of Pilgrims On The Silk Road alongside a scholar who studied church missions & politics in the Belgian Congo, and the Irish-American Catholic use of mass media (i.e. Fulton Sheen). Other panels will be dealing with literature, theology, history, etc. The event is called the Second Annual Graduate Liberal Studies Conference. Scholars from around the region are gathering to present their work.
