Special Student Issue of the Journal of Mormon History
The Journal of Mormon History is seeking contributions for a special issue that will highlight the work of undergraduate and graduate students working on Mormon history. Papers may address any aspect of the Restoration Movement, including the Community of Christ and Mormon fundamentalists. The Journal is especially interested in contributions that address Mormonism?s racial and geographic diversity, twentieth-century Mormon history, and material culture. All topics and contributions, however, will be given serious consideration.
Interested students should submit a short 500-word abstract of their suggested article along with a CV or brief biography by January 1st, 2014. Accepted articles will be due September 1st, 2014 for planned publication in Fall 2015. The issue will be co-edited by Amanda Hendrix-Komoto (PhD Candidate, University of Michigan) and Christopher Jones (PhD Candidate, College of William and Mary).
