*I get a ton of these CFP through H-Grad, but this one seemed particularly applicable.  Perhaps we could get a CFH panel together for this integrating history and theology?  Thoughts?*

common interest in interdisciplinary and systematic approaches to
historical research (including, but by no means limited to, sociology,
urban planning, geography, demography, economics, and political
