In consultation with Brigham Young University administration, the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship recently signed an agreement to transfer ownership of the Mormon Studies Review to the University of Illinois Press (UIP) following the publication of its sixth volume under editor-in-chief J. Spencer Fluhman.
“We are confident that in its new home at UIP, the Review will continue to flourish and develop on pace with the vibrant and significant academic sub-field that is Mormon studies,” said Fluhman, who also serves as executive director of the Maxwell Institute.
Clydette Wantland, journals manager for the University of Illinois Press, said she is “excited to have the Mormon Studies Review join UIP’s journals program, which publishes 40 journals in the humanities and social sciences, has a 100 year history of publishing top-quality journals, and a proven dedication to Mormon scholarship.”
As volume six nears publication at the end of this year, Fluhman expressed gratitude to the Review‘s current editorial staff members Benjamin Park, Melissa Inouye, Rachel Cope, and Sandra Shurtleff, and to past staff members Morgan Davis, Don Brugger, and Blair Hodges.
“It has been a joy to work with these fine professionals over the past six years,” Fluhman said. “My thanks to all who have helped build Mormon Studies Review over the past six years! We appreciate our relationship with UIP and expect great things as the Review enters this new chapter.”
