Margaret S. Thompson, associate professor of history and political science, writes about her experience as an outsider researching the history of sisters. Thompson says "I believe I've spent enough time within sisters' domain to understand it, to speak its language, and to interpret and present it all to others. In this, I may have an advantage that insiders do not in presenting that world to a wider audience that really ought to know about it." Read her article, "An outsider studies the insider world of women religious," published in Global Sisters Report. 05/01/18
