By January 28, 2011

David Golding is a PhD student in the History of Christianity at Claremont Graduate University and a co-editor (with Loyd Ericson) of the new Claremont Journal of Mormon Studies. He has been kind enough to share a little bit about this new publishing venture and a Call for Papers.

The Claremont Mormon Studies Student Association is excited to announce the Claremont Journal of Mormon Studies. This periodical is a student-run academic journal committed to the advancement of the field of Mormon studies and will feature high quality articles and reviews of a wide range of fields and disciplines. The journal particularly encourages students to submit Mormon studies-related papers completed during the course of class work in graduate school. The purpose of this journal is to establish a proficient and easily accessible forum for ongoing research in Mormon studies by qualified graduate students, exemplifying new research being done in various fields.

We are accepting submissions for our inaugural issue, which we expect to publish in April. Articles and reviews may come from any disciplinary perspective. More information on submission guidelines and deadlines is available on the journal’s website, Additional inquiries may be sent to the editors via email at
