The call for papers for the third Mormon Media studies conference, hosted by BYU and BYU-I’s communication departments. The theme is “Mormons and Meaning: How media shapes Mormon identities,” and it will take place on Friday, October 17, 2014, in Salt Lake City. See details here.

By Common Consent is doing a series of commentaries on documents in the Joseph Smith Papers that are worth your time: part one, part two, part three.
