Journal of Mormon History
The Journal of Mormon History examines the Mormon past through a variety of perspectives, including but not limited to Mormon studies/religious studies, cultural history, social history, intellectual history, reception history, sociology, economics, geography, political science, women’s studies, material culture, race studies, and folklore. Importantly, Mormonism is interpreted to encompass all traditions that trace their origins to Joseph Smith Jr. The editors are especially interested in articles that offer international perspectives and twentieth century and contemporary history. In addition to traditional articles, the Journal publishes round tables and shorter essays analyzing particularly significant (and not widely known) documents, photographs, and material culture, as well as historiographical essays.
