I’m an M.A. candidate in history at Brigham Young University, currently applying to PhD. programs in American religious and western history. My master’s thesis (tentatively entitled “Memoirs of the Persecuted: The Memory of Persecution and the Making of the Mormon West) analyzes how nineteenth-century Latter-day Saints employed narratives of persecution in the United States to construct images of the West as a religious refuge. My publications have appeared in BYU Studies and Mormon Historical Studies and I have presented papers at the annual conferences of the Mormon History Association, the John Whitmer Historical Association, and the Utah State Historical Society.
