"The Worldwide Church: The Global Reach of Mormonism"
March 6 and 7.
The 2014 BYU Church History Symposium will be held Thursday, March 6, at the BYU Conference Center in Provo and on Friday, March 7, at the LDS Conference Center theater in Salt Lake City. On Thursday, March 6, the keynote address will be presented by renowned historian, author, and educator Terryl L. Givens at 7:00 p.m. in the Joseph Smith Building (JSB) auditorium on the BYU campus. The keynote speaker on Friday, March 7, at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City, will be President Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
This conference will explore the development, tensions, experiences, manifestations, and ramifications of Mormonism in its expansion beyond the boundaries of the United States. It will include analysis on the Church’s worldwide presence in the 21st century as well as historical studies focused on a specific time period from centuries past. This symposium will also tackle broad questions about Mormonism’s international growth as well as a narrow geographical/time-based focus.
This conference is jointly sponsored by the Department of Church History and Doctrine at Brigham Young University, The Church History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Conferences and Workshops at BYU.
