Laurie Maffly-Kipp One of the Newest Members of the Journal of Mormon History Board of Editors

By July 14, 2009

J. Stapley tipped me off recently that Laurie Maffly-Kipp is one of the newest members of the Journal of Mormon History Board of Editors.  Dr. Maffly-Kipp is an associate professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (Where our own Stan is headed for his Ph. D. program). Along with her contributions to African-American religion, she has contributed to the study of Mormons and Protestants in the Pacific Basin in lectures and articles, being the coeditor (with Reid Nielson) of Proclamation to the People: Nineteenth-century Mormonism and the Pacific Basin Frontier. She also recently presented at the Sacred Space Symposium at BYU on the preparation of the Chilean people for the opening of the Santiago, Chile temple.

Also incoming are Keith Erekson, assistant professor of history at the University of Texas-El Paso who has been a Board member of the Mormon History Association and Jenny Lund of the LDS Church History Museum among others.

Outgoing is Ardis Parshall.  Thanks to her for her work and to the incomers for the work they will be undertaking on behalf of Mormon Studies.

  4. Great all around, and many thanks to Ardis. Oh, and BIG CONGRATS to Stan for his admission to UNC (even if it isn’t IU).
