CHCD’s First Guest Lecture

On Oct 25th at 9 am EST, CHCD‘s first guest lecture entitled “Making History Come Alive! – A Case Study based on the Passionist China Collection, Spatial Analysis and the China Historical Christian Database” will be on Zoom. It will be a lecture followed by Q&A. 

Father Rob Carbonneau, C.P., Ph.D. is from West Hartford, Connecticut and was ordained a Passionist priest in 1978. He is currently an Adjunct Professor of History at the University of Scranton. One of his many academic achievements is that he participated with scholars to digitize the Passionist China Collection from 2012 to 2017 at the Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Culture, where he is also an Affiliated Research Fellow. He gave a highly informative and passionate talk to our CHCD students this past summer at the Ricci Institute, and so we are excited to invite him back to give a lecture to all current students. This is also an open invitation to students and scholars who have contributed significantly to our database or are looking forward to partnering with us.
