Christine Croxall

Christine Croxall earned her Ph.D. in history at the University of Delaware. Her dissertation analyzes how Catholics and Protestants competed to missionize the Mississippi River Valley, from St. Louis to New Orleans, between 1780-1830, and how the region’s inhabitants—white, Native American, and African-descended—reacted to and shaped the agendas of the missionaries sent to convert them.

Dr. Croxall taught the course “Whose St. Louis? Religion, Race, and Power in the Gateway City,” in fall 2016, and in fall 2017 will teach the course “Native American/Euro-American Encounters: Confrontations of Bodies and Beliefs.”
