Reminder: 47th Annual MHA Conference in Calgary next week

By June 20, 2012

Just a reminder to our readers that next weekend (June 28-July 1) in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the Mormon History Association will be holding its annual conference. There’s a number of fantastic panels, papers, and sessions dealing with a whole range of fascinating topics. A number of JIers are on top to present, as are many friends of JI. It should be a great conference and I hope to see many of you there. Be sure and introduce yourself if you’re a reader and we’ve never met.

For the first time ever, MHA is launching an organized effort to bring the conference to the twitterverse. Several attendees (including yours truly) will be tweeting live from the conference, with updates and summaries of 140 words or less. If you don’t already follow MHA on Twitter, be sure to do so @MormonHistAssoc. The hashtag for tweeting this year’s conference is #mha2012. Be sure and include it in your tweets from conference.

I look forward to seeing many of you there!

  3. I am definitely a “friend of JI” and will be there to present my first MHA conference paper. My husband and I are looking forward to the events–it’s been two years since we’ve been able to attend.
