We are pleased to welcome Blair Hodges into the Maxwell Institute as our new Public Communications Specialist. Blair graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Mass Communications and is just completing his MA in Religious Studies from Georgetown. His thesis is on intellectual disability in Mormon thought and history. If this sounds interesting (and it is), Blair blogs on By Common Consent (BHodges) and has done a recent 7-part series on this topic. He is also a prolific book reviewer (see his blog, Life on Gold Plates) and has podcasted for FAIR. Blair will manage our websites and social media, assist in digital product development, and contribute his academic expertise to our Mormon studies publications and initiatives.
