2008: Future Mormon Studies Events at Claremont / Claremont Mormon Studies Student Assn

This post consists of the list of future events related to the Claremont Mormon Studies Student Association at Claremont Graduate School in California. I have attended seminars there by Trumen Madsen, Richard Turley, and Richard Bushman recently, and am looking forward particularly to upcoming presentations by three favorites of this blogger (had you noticed?): David Paulsen, Robert Millet, and James Falconer. These will be rare opportunities to hear these outstanding scholars in Southern California. They will take place during the afternoon or at lunchtime, as is frequent for academic presentations.
See the original at this link. Note that I have added their main website to my “favorite sites” links, as well.

Thanks much,

Steve St.Clair
