The JI Welcomes Kris W. as a Permablogger

By April 7, 2011

Kris W. contributed to our Women’s History at JI series last month, and we liked her post so well we asked her to be a permanent contributor. As stated on the other post, Kris has a M.A. in History from The University of Western Ontario and she has co-authored three articles with Jonathan Stapley on Mormon healing rituals. An emeritus permablogger at BCC, Kris brings much needed expertise in healing rituals, women, gender, and material religion. Please join us in welcoming Kris!

  14. Kris, I am glad to finally make your acquaintance! I’ve been blogging about you and J. Stapley a bit recently. I wish you had been able to comment on a couple of my posts about your article in JMH. It’s not your most recent, but see
