The Ellsworth Outrage, 1854: Or How 19th Century Jesuits Built a Global Catholicism

Share This Content
How did modern Catholicism become global? The talk uses a violent attack on a Swiss Jesuit in a Maine small town to tell a story about globalization in the world's largest, most multicultural and multilingual institution.

With 20 departments across the humanities, arts, and social sciences, the College of Arts and Letters is home to exceptional faculty and talented students who are studying what they love. It's an environment to ask big questions, read classic texts, and explore languages and cultures.

We're not just about learning through acquisition. We're about learning through exploration. Our undergraduate students travel the globe to research topics that fascinate them, then turn their observations into conclusions about the world.

Through the liberal arts, you learn to read deeply. Think about issues critically. Discuss topics thoughtfully. Write arguments persuasively. Contribute to projects creatively. And these abilities aren't just vital in the classroom—they're exactly what employers, graduate schools, and service organizations are looking for.
