McGreevy, who teaches courses on American political and religious history, is researching the intersection of religion and politics in the United States since the 1960s, as well as 19th century Jesuits and what they can reveal about religious controversy, the “Catholic revival” and the trans-Atlantic dimensions of American religion. McGreevy is the author of “Parish Boundaries: The Catholic Encounter with Race in the Twentieth Century Urban North,” which was awarded the Shea Prize for best book on Catholic history, and “Catholicism and American Freedom: A History,” which examines tensions between traditional American notions of liberty and progress and Catholicism and was praised in the New York Times and Washington Post as “brilliant” and “a masterpiece.”
