Now that’s Italian!

Gerald McKevitt, S.J., wins the Howard R. Marraro Prize in Italian History.

The American Catholic Historical Association has honored historian Gerald McKevitt, S.J., with its annual Howard R. Marraro Prize in Italian History. McKevitt, the Ignacio Ellacuría University Professor of History at SCU, earned the award for his book Brokers of Culture: Italian Jesuits in the American West, 1848-1919. The prize recognizes the leading book of the year on Italian history. “Combining religious history and immigration history,” the judges noted, “the book shows how the missionaries’ Italian cultural background helped shape their efforts at conversion and, more generally, their interactions with others in a rapidly changing multicultural environment.”
