Mormonism in the Public Mind at UVU

Richard and Claudia Bushman, Jana Riess, Terryl Givens, and Michael Paulson are among the speakers at Utah Valley University’s conference next Thursday and Friday (April 2-3) on “Mormonism in the Public Mind,” addressing public perceptions of Mormonism and LDS efforts to shape those public perceptions. Presentation titles such as “Political Discourse and the Latter-day Saints,” “Symbols and Boundary Maintenance,” and “LDS Public Relations: Strategies and Applications,” indicate some of the ways these themes will be developed. All sessions are free and open to the public.

    I was unable to make it to the sessions given April 2-3 2009 on “Mormonism in the Public Mind” and I was wondering if I could get some of those talks emailed to me for an essay I am writing. If you happened to have any useful links or ideas on Mitt Romney and his candidacy in the 2008 elections and why he didn’t make it to the white house it would be greatly appreciated.
