Juvenile Instructor » Welcome, Max
 


Welcome, Max

By: matt b. - September 14, 2010

We’re pleased to announce that Max Mueller has agreed to join the permanent cast of the Juvenile Instructor. His name shall soon materialize on the sidebar. Again, with new and improved plaudits and laud, his bio:

Max Perry Mueller is a PhD candidate in American religious history at Harvard University, focusing on nineteenth century Mormonism and African American religious history. He is also a graduate of the Harvard Divinity School (M.T.S.) and Carleton College. His current research project involves early black Mormon pioneers to Salt Lake. He is excited to find interlocutors on all things Mormon, especially issues of race in the Restored Church (to which, quoting Booker T. Washington following his own 1913 visit to Utah, he has “not yet converted”).

  3. Max, your contributions to JI are wonderful, and I am glad that they will now be on a more permanent basis. I am particularly excited to hear more on your research, as I find it to be an especially important aspect of LDS history and identity. Welcome!
