Acknowledging Diversity in the American Catholic Experience

Acknowledging Diversity in the American Catholic Experience

(p.127) 8 Acknowledging Diversity in the American Catholic Experience
Teaching African American Religions

Bernadette McNary-Zak

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the question of how a course on the history of American Catholicism might be framed for a non-Catholic, Protestant, and Southern context. The author of this book has developed an entirely new course, “Histories of American Catholicism”, which strives to address diversity by problematizing American Catholic identity. This chapter discusses several methodological issues with a particular focus on how they have shaped the author's thinking about how to teach this course. Since the course has not yet been taught in either a Catholic or a non-Catholic context, this chapter is a working proposal that offers a preliminary road map. It will require adjustment as it is tested out.
