In recent years, Mormon history has become a higher profile area of study, benefiting from the attention of rising numbers of non-Mormon academics as well as groundbreaking scholarly achievements by Church members. This increased attention has propelled Mormon studies in new directions: new disciplines, methodologies, and questions have deeply enriched our knowledge of the Mormon past in new areas and has shed new light on old issues. Our panelists will discuss their sojourns in Mormon history, as well as the direction of the field.
