Mormon Media Observer: Mormon Media Observer: A milestone for Mormons and the media
Indeed, this conference may mark a beginning of a new field of study: Mormon Media Studies.
Speakers include University of Richmond scholar Terryl Givens, whose books on the Mormon story, including his remarkable writings on the Book of Mormon, have been published by Oxford University Press, and UNLV scholar Dan Stout, a Latter-day Saint, whose work led to the founding of an academic journal on the study of religion and media.
While Cole may have been largely forgotten, the Mormon religion he was among the first to write about is still having its movements recorded and its opinions detailed, and as Bennett said, surprising distant readers — all sufficient reason for further study.
