  4. Jared: The title had read “Why Mormon History is to important…”

    The to/too mistake is too consistent amongst us to cause more than just a smile 🙂

  5. We do that often? I never noticed…well, obviously!

  6. Oh, don’t worry about the to/too problem. Better first to work on everybody getting lie/lay right.

  10. I’m really hoping for more discussion than lecture, since I’m no historian! I think Mormon history has a particularly motley and interesting group of practitioners, and I’m interested in how we make space for their varied contributions, all of which are important (though ultimately, perhaps, also impotent :))

  11. Thanks for the announcement–I’m not a historian by any stretch of the imagination, but I’ll be in town and it sounds very interesting.

  12. Thanks for the further information, Kristine. And other Kristine, I hope you’ll be able to make it. The map linked to is good, but it doesn’t extend too far from campus. If you need any assistance, please email me at

  14. Did I miss the notes for this Jared?

    Comment by BHodges — December 16, 2009 @ 10:44 am

  15. No, my notes were crap, so I’m waiting on Kristine to shoot me a summary, which I’ll post as soon as I get it. Thanks for askin’.
