The Baylor University History department welcomes you to a lecture by Catherine Brekus

Thursday, March 1, 2012
3:30 p.m.
Morrison Hall, Room 120

Dr Brekus is Associate Professor of the History of Christianity in the Divinity School; Associate Faculty in the Department of History teaches American religious history. She is the author of Strangers and Pilgrims: Female Preaching in America, 1740–1845, which explores the rise of Protestant female preaching during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, and the editor of The Religious History of American Women: Reimagining the Past, a collection of essays that asks how women’s history changes our understanding of American religion. She is currently writing Sarah Osborn’s World: The Rise of Evangelicalism in Early America, a book about the early evangelical movement based on an eighteenth-century woman’s manuscript diaries. With W. Clark Gilpin, she is the coeditor of American Christianities, an introduction to the multiple forms of Christian expression in the United States, which will be published in the Fall of 2011. She has been involved in several collaborative research projects, including the History of Christian Practice in America, Perspectives on Children in Christian Thought, and Religion, Feminism, and the Family.
