Winter 2019

The articles collected in the Winter 2019 Issue were prepared for the Mormon Scholars in the Humanities 2019 annual conference, held in May 16–18 at Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah. The theme of the conference was “Ecologies,” and these papers present a stimulating and widely-varied set of responses from numerous perspectives within the humanities. Includes articles from Christopher Osarson, Gary Ettari, Rachel Gilman, Michael Haycock and more. And the issue ends with a sermon on “Dealing with Difficult Questions” by Roger Terry.
