  4. Thanks for the notice, CHris!

    On this, what theses and dissertations on Mormonism came out in 2009?

    I know yours did, and Jon Moyer’s dissertation…what else?

  5. Ah, I forgot to include the CFP for the Diss and Thesis Awards. Thanks, Jared. I’ve updated the post.

    Robin Jensen’s thesis was also completed in 2009, and I’m sure there’s others.
