Andrea Radke-Moss Joins the JI

By March 5, 2012

We’re excited to announce that Andrea Radke-Moss has agreed to join the JI as our newest permablogger! Please join us in giving her a warm welcome.

Andrea G. Radke-Moss is a professor of history at Brigham Young University-Idaho, but currently on a two-year leave of absence to be home with her two later-in-life babies. Her book, Bright Enoch, a history of coeducation at land-grant universities in the 19th century West, was published with the University of Nebraska Press in 2008. Since then, she has published numerous chapters on women in the Great Plains, Mormon women at the Chicago World’s Fair, and women in higher education in the West. She is a contributor to the current Women of Faith series by Deseret Book. She is currently researching elite Mormon women’s and men’ birthday celebrations in the 19th-century, and Mormon women’s experiences with violence in Missouri.

  6. Not the least of Andrea’s credentials is that she has been and is a member of the Board of the Mormon History Association and is co-chair of the Program Committee for MHA’s 2013 annual conference to be held in Layton, Utah.
