My name is David Morris.
David M. Morris was awarded a PhD in History and Sociology of Religion (University of Southampton, 2010) with a focus on Victorian Studies and particularly British Mormonism, with interests in the tension between class and religion, whether that be migration, death studies or missiology.
His most recent publication is Mormonism in Europe: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives, with fellow editors Kim B. Östman and Irén E. Annus sees 16 authors sharing a wide perspective of European Mormonism.
Early in his career, David was one of the first to be selected for the Maxwell Institute summer seminar, with Richard Bushman and Terryl Givens in 2006 and was also one of the co-founders of European Mormon Studies Association (EMSA). EMSA brought many European based scholars of Mormonism and Scholars of European Mormonism into one arena supported by conferences held throughout Europe.
David is also the General Editor of the International Journal of Mormon Studies (IJMS), which has previously published some significant articles by scholars including Mauss, Givens, Van Beek et al. It is planned that the journal will be soon taken out of stasis to support the new efforts of international scholarship.
David currently works in British regional emergency governance for Police and Fire and has responsibility for Policy and Research among other things.
