For over a decade, young scholars have gathered each summer to study the origins and development of the Mormon movement under the direction of distinguished Mormon scholars (Richard Bushman, Terryl Givens). This summer, Claudia Bushman will join Richard in conducting the Summer Seminar on Mormon Culture. This year’s theme is “The History of the Mormon Family.”
Graduate students and junior faculty who are interested in participating need to submit an application by this Saturday, February 15. Admitted participants will receive a stipend of $3000 with an accommodations subsidy if needed.
Past participants include Kathleen Flake, chair of Mormon Studies at the University of Virginia, and Reid L. Neilson, managing director of the Church History Department for the LDS Church.
The Summer Seminar on Mormon Culture is sponsored by the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship, with support from the Mormon Scholars Foundation and the Jack and Mary Lois Wheatley Institution.
