For those interested in what has historically been a wonderful conference, I forward the following announcement.
It’s my pleasure to let you know a few of the details of the 2009 conference of Mormon Scholars in the Humanities. We cordially invite you to join us.
The conference will be held May 8 and 9, 2009, at Aspen Grove, near Provo, Utah. Panels are taking shape around religious criticism and theory, religious criticism in practice, criticism and scripture, religious criticism and science, the implications of Mormon doctrine for criticism, and several other important topics. The first panel is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on May 8. A nationally respected figure in the field, John Caputo of Fordham University, will deliver the major conference address Friday night, and we are working out arrangements for a workshop in which he can talk informally and answer questions about the prospects for the role of religion in criticism.
I am attaching a registration form for the convenience of those who might wish to join us at Aspen Grove.
I apologize for the closeness of the deadline for requesting lodging, but we have had to wait for the general outline of the program to take shape. The deadline for requesting a room at Aspen Grove is March 26. Should you wish to stay overnight there, please email our conference registrar, Ron Bartholomew, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let him know of your accommodation and meal needs by March 26. Your check and registration can follow in the mail.
If you would like to join us during the days only, please register and mark the meals you wish to enjoy at Aspen Grove and send the form and check to Ron as indicated on the form. You may also register at the conference; however, you won’t be able to order meals at that time.
With kind regards,
MSH Secretary Treasurer
