An Oral History of American Nuns

Carole Garibaldi Rogers

Oxford Oral History Series

  • Presents the only collection of oral histories of American nuns from a range of different communities and ethnic backgrounds
  • Offers rare perspectives and insights into events in American and Catholic Church history since the mid-twentieth century
  • Interviewees include a Maryknoll missionary who spent decades in Africa, an inner-city art teacher, a recovering alcoholic, a hospital administrator, and an advocate for the gay and lesbian community who has been disciplined by the Vatican
  • The early 1990s interviews from the first edition are interfaced with 2010 updating interviews with the same women, offering an opportunity to make historical comparisons
  • Includes a new prologue and epilogue that contextualize the oral histories that form the body of the book
