The Richard Lyman Bushman Professorship
Kathleen Flake is the first to occupy the Professorship, after a rigorous search for a scholar whose academic pedigree, body of scholarly work, and collegial commitment would be an asset to the institution at large, as well as to the study of Mormonism. Professor Flake brings to her teaching and research a breadth of training in history, religious studies, law and English literature. She has served in positions of responsibility in national professional organizations and on the boards of scholarly journals, and has been the recipient of grants from national foundations promoting academic research. Her publications have proven to be popular among academic and general readers, and many are featured here in our Resources section.
