DATES TO REMEMBER

Remember that the Mormon History Association’s Call for Papers due date is October 1st.  If you are looking to join a panel, feel free to comment on the link in the last sentence or post in one of the Mormon History Association sites mentioned on that link.

Jared Farmer is speaking at the Salt Lake City Library on Utah environmental history and culture.

Todd Compton is also speaking this Thursday, at Benchmark Books. He will be speaking on his new Jacob Hamblin biography.

The final plug for lectures in today’s post goes to Kris Wright’s upcoming lecture on September 12. You won’t want to miss her look at Mormon material culture, women, and ritual.

STAY TUNED FOR MORE

Jared T presented at the Historical Conference for the Museum of Mormon History in Provo yesterday. Be sure to stay tuned to his blog for a possible overview or notes on the conference. Also, if you haven’t been to the museum and you’re within a reasonable driving distance to Provo, it is definitely worth your time!

In other news from MHA, if you are a subscriber, you can now access many conference presentations in audio form through the MHA website. The 2013 sessions are close to being available to subscribers.

PODCASTS

NPR’s On Point discusses a new book, Ecstatic Nationwhich touches briefly on Mormons and popular sovereignty.

NOTES AND NEWS

You won’t want to miss Keepapitchinin’s posts on Saim Abd al-Samid, a Turkish convert to Mormonism, who was secretly baptized in 1901 (be sure to catch both posts).

Enjoy the links. Let me know if I missed an article you would have liked to see profiled in the MSWR!
