The Juvenile Instructor Welcomes SC Taysom as a New Permablogger

By January 25, 2008

Although it is customary to have someone be a guestblogger first and then issue the invitation to be a permablogger, in this case we’re pleased to announce that SC Taysom will be bypassing that formality and be joining us directly. SC actually did his guest-blogger training at BCC over the summer, but has held out for a better offer ;).

Here’s some background on SC:

SC Taysom earned a BA degree in History from BYU and an MA and Ph.D. in the History of Religion with a specialty in American Religious History and Ritual Studies from Indiana University, Bloomington.  A manuscript based on his dissertation, a comparison of nineteenth-century Shaker and Mormon boundary maintenance strategies, is under review for publication in the Religion in North America Series at Indiana University Press. He has published on Mormon and Shaker topics in Dialogue, the Western Historical Quarterly, and various other venues. His work has been presented at conferences of the Annual Shaker Seminar, the Western History Association, the Mormon History Association, the Joseph Fielding Smith Institute for LDS History, the John Whitmer Historical Association, and the Communal Studies Association. Most recently, he participated in the inaugural panel of the Mormon Studies Consultation at the American Academy of Religion?s annual meeting in San Diego.

Please welcome SC aboard the Steamship Juvenile Instructor.
