Fwd: New Mormon journal

New Mormon journal
Announcing the creation of a new Mormon periodical -

"Archipelago: a Mormon Studies E-journal"

Archipelago will serve as a place for people to publish work that they
are not inclined to polish-off to a print journal standard, and for
junior scholars to gain publishing experience. We will, however,
demand professional writing: all articles will be peer-reviewed and
edited. It is our intention to run the gamut of Mormon studies:
scripture, theology, history, and Mormonalia of all stripes. In tone
we hope to be Englandesque:

...to be obedient while maintaining integrity, to have faith while
being true to reason, to serve and love in the face of imperfections
and offenses...

We are looking for people to serve on the editorial board. All those
who are interested, please email your academic credentials to ronan at
jhu.edu. Hopefully we can assemble a range of LDS scholars who can
review papers and assist with publication. Currently serving on the
board of Archipelago are:

Ronan J. Head, M.Phil. (Oxford)

Jonathan Stapley, Ph.D. (Purdue)

John Fowles, M.St. (Oxford), J.D. (BYU)

John Crawford, Ph.D. (ABD, Johns Hopkins)

Archipelago will publish biannually; our first issue will be published
on the internet later this year.
