David

By October 26, 2007

I’m an M.A. candidate in history at Brigham Young University, currently applying to PhD. programs in American religious and western history. My master’s thesis (tentatively entitled “Memoirs of the Persecuted: The Memory of Persecution and the Making of the Mormon West) analyzes how nineteenth-century Latter-day Saints employed narratives of persecution in the United States to construct images of the West as a religious refuge. My publications have appeared in BYU Studies and Mormon Historical Studies and I have presented papers at the annual conferences of the Mormon History Association, the John Whitmer Historical Association, and the Utah State Historical Society.
