Michele Dillon, associate professor of sociology at the University
of New Hampshire, is available to discuss the election of Pope Benedict
XVI. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany was elected the 265th
pontiff April 19, 2005, by the College of Cardinals. Dillon can
be reached at (603) 862-2925 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dillon has written extensively on Catholicism in the United States
and elsewhere, and has been especially interested in the institutional
and cultural processes that enable Catholics who selectively disagree
with aspects of Catholic teaching to remain loyal to Catholicism.
She also has examined the political engagement of the Catholic Church,
and of other churches and activist organizations in public moral
debates in different western countries.
