Samford University assistant professor of core curriculum Carol Ann Vaughn Cross recently moderated a session at the American Society of Church History conference Jan. 5-8 in Chicago.

Vaughn Cross moderated four presentations in the "Gendered Christianity in 20th Century Missions and Rituals" session.

"Four papers considered how gender was and is an important way of American Christians' understanding themselves and the missions they sought to export to others in the twentieth century," she said.

Vaughn Cross joined the Samford faculty in 2000.
