A New Messenger Has Arrived (with apologies to Tony Kushner)

By July 24, 2012

We’re happy to announce that we’ve added an enlightening new permablogger to our ranks.

Her bio:

Cristine Hutchison-Jones (call me Crissy!) received her BA in American Studies and Religion from Florida State University in 2001, and her PhD in Religious and Theological Studies from Boston University in 2011. She is a cultural and intellectual historian of religion in the United States with a focus on religious intolerance and representations of minorities. Her dissertation, “Reviling and Revering the Mormons: Defining American Values, 1890-2008,” explored images of the Mormons in American news, fiction and non-fiction writing, and television and film. She is the author of “Center and Periphery: Mormons and American Culture in Tony Kushner’s *Angels in America*.”

Welcome, Crissy!

  2. Terrific! The contemporary angle rounds things out nicely, too. (Are you still in Boston area? We could have a New England branch of the permabloggers meeting!) Our campus is putting on Angels this fall, by the way. Looking forward to reading your posts!

  8. Thanks, all! I’m glad to be here. (Yes, Tona, I’m in Boston. I’m currently working in administration at Harvard. I’d love to have a New England branch meeting! Count me in!)
