Today is the first birthday of The Interpreter Foundation. One year ago today, our very first article went online and the launch of Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture was publicly announced at the conclusion of the 2012 FAIR conference. (The decision to establish a new online journal had been reached slightly more than a week before.)
Interpreter has now now published a total of fifty-six (56) articles or reviews over the course of fifty-three (53) consecutive Fridays, without a single break. Thus far, these have produced five complete volumes. A sixth volume is underway.
The Interpreter Foundation has also posted thirty-seven “scripture roundtables,” and more — including at least two special-themed roundtables — are coming very shortly. Additionally, the Foundation offers postings of news, a blog, videos, podcasts, audio formats, and multiple subscription modes, including (but far and away not limited to) print.
The Interpreter Foundation has already co-sponsored a symposium on temples (the proceedings of which will eventually be published), several books are in process, and, on Saturday, 9 November, it will host a significant symposium on “Science and Mormonism: Cosmos, Earth, and Man.” (Seating will be limited at that symposium, and tickets — though free — will be required, so we strongly encourage early registration.)
