  • Joseph Mannard

    Joseph Mannard (Ph. D. University of Maryland 1989) is a specialist in 19th-century U.S. social history, with strong interests in the antebellum reform period and in religious history. His research deals with the lives of Roman Catholic nuns in the 19th century, a topic that illuminates the histories of charitable work, education, immigration, and women.

    Dr. Mannard offers courses in Early American Thought and Culture, Early Republic, Religion in America, and Women in America. Currently he is completing an editorial project titled “How did Catholic/Protestant Conflict and Cooperation Help Promote the Cause of Female Education in Antebellum Wheeling West Virginia?” for submission to the Internet journal Women and Social Movements.
