Joseph Spencer recaps the Mormon Theology Symposium that recently wrapped up in London here.

A whole host of qualified people (including JI-ers Andrea Radke-Moss and Rachael Givens) weigh in on the question of equality, gender, and priesthood here on a panel at Patheos.

Is the Mormon moment finally over? Find out here.

On the complexities of Mormon identities, being a gay Mormon, and going from being a missionary to playing one on a stage.

On the intersection of politics and religion when it comes to popular opinion.

Emmeline Wells is highlighted by the National Women’s History Museum here.

The Deseret News reports on the third new temple film to come into rotation in the span of twelve or so months.

  2. Saskia,

    I’ve maintained MormonConferences.org for several years and I’m actually looking at giving it to someone who will keep it updated. The folks at Juvenile Instructor have likely benefited the most (besides reporters who cover such things) and I’d like to know if you or anyone you know would like to provide that service to the Mormon Studies community. Otherwise I’m likely to let it slide into obscurity.
