Sunstone Scholars to Speak at Claremont Graduate University

Claremont On Friday and Saturday, March 26-27, Sunstone and the Claremont School of Religion will co-host a symposium on current Mormon issues. The leafy Claremont campus, with its beautiful Spanish revival architecture, is located thirty miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

Several participants will be discussing polygamy: Newell Bringhurst, Don Bradley, Carrie Miles, and Signature author Todd Compton. Another Signature author, D. Michael Quinn, will speak on religious tribalism and early Mormonism. Claudia Bushman and others will speak on Mormon feminism.

One of the highlights of the symposium will be Robert Rees’s analysis of Mormon radio host Glenn Beck as “Latter-day Saint or Latter-day Jo McCarthy.” There will also be a panel discussion on recent Mormon movies, and Richard Bushman and Armand Mauss will update attendees about the progress of the Mormon Studies program at Claremont.

The opening plenary session will be Friday at 8:00 p.m. The symposium will then resume the next morning at 8:00 a.m. Signature Books will display of recent titles, which will be available for sale. For more information, please consult the preliminary program.

Events will be held at Stauffer Hall and the Albrecht Auditorium. 925 Dartmouth Ave, Claremont CA.
