  1. Ardis, have you (or anyone) heard whether some/all of the papers will be published?

  2. No idea, Bryan. I’ve agreed to help BYU publicize generally history-related activities like this, but I have no inside information.

    The website from which this announcement comes is this one, which has a “send message” link at the bottom. If you find out about publication, from querying them or otherwise, it would be useful to have you let us all know.
