In the third installment of our Spring Faculty Research Series, Assistant Professor of History Stephen Andes will discuss Pope Francis and his impact on the future of Catholicism around the world.

Professor Andes received his B.A. and M.A. from Portland State University and his doctorate from Oxford University. The Latin American Studies Association (Mexican Section) awarded him Best Dissertation of 2010-2011. His first book, The Vatican and Catholic Activism in Mexico and Chile: The Politics of Transnational Catholicism, 1920-1940 (Oxford Univiversity Press), is a study of Vatican policy towards Catholic activism in Latin America between the World Wars. His new book project is a biography of Gustavo Gutiérrez, one of the intellectual founders of liberation theology; its tentative title is Biography of Liberation: Gustavo Gutiérrez and His Times. Professor Andes has appeared on the Jim Engster Show to discuss the election of Pope Francis, the first pope from Latin America.
