  1. Thanks for putting this together, Joseph! Are there any plans to do stuff after the conference? Like an edited volume? or a public history event? There was a lot of energy in the room, but it seems like the energy will die unless effort is put into keeping it going.

  2. I appreciated the tweets; thanks. I sincerely hope someone is able to memorialize the results of this conference in a more substantive way; it would be a shame for it to vanish into the ether…

  3. A book with the main papers or even just putting them online would be very nice. It’s quite unfortunate there are so many great conferences on Mormon thought with so few of the papers making it into wider distribution.
