A few hours after presenting at AECT on Thursday morning, I hopped on a plane to Salt Lake City, so that I could attend the 2023 conference of the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion—especially the sessions associated with the Mormon Social Science Association. I’m giving three presentations today and wanted to include my slides here for anyone else who’s interested: I’d be happy to talk more about any of these!
In this presentation, I’ll be talking about my work in progress analyzing references to religion (and especially Christian nationalism) in blog posts authored by Gab CEO Andrew Torba.
“This is not an official site”: Theological speculation and discussion on the LDS Freedom Forum.
Levi Sands is the lead author on this (Amy Chapman and I are providing backup), and we’ll be presenting on how participants on a right-wing Latter-day Saint forum discuss the theology behind polygamy.
This is another solo presentation from me, where I’ll be discussing Mormonism-focused groups on the Gab social media platform and how they define and navigate boundaries between themselves and various groups.
