Biography[edit | edit source]

Park received his bachelor's degree in both English and history from Brigham Young University in 2009. He then went on to study at the University of Edinburgh. After that he studied at the University of Cambridge completing a doctorate there in 2014. Before joining the faculty of Sam Houston State (2016), Park lectured as the University of Missouri as the inaugural postdoctoral fellow in history at the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy (2014–2016)[11][12] and as a supervisor and lecturer in history at the University of Cambridge (2012–2014).

As a young Latter-day Saint, Park served as a missionary for the LDS Church in the Washington, DC area.

During 2014 a book review by Park (viz. of David F. Holland's Sacred Borders: Continuing Revelation and Canonical Restraint in Early America[13]) catalyzed some controversy among the Mormon apologetics community. Within his review, Park advocated for the robustly secular framework of 19th-century historical studies within which to engage the greater religious studies academy with regard to Book of Mormon studies.[14][15][16][17][18]

In 2017, Park joined twenty other Mormon studies scholars in signing a friend-of-the-court brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court with regard its review of Trump Administration's travel bans. The brief draws parallels between historical U.S. government-promoted anti-Mormon sentiments and the allegedly anti-Muslim atmosphere of the proposed bans.[19][20][21] In 2017 Park was among and ten co-authors publishing "Shoulder to the Wheel: Resources to Help Latter-day Saints Face Racism ..."[22][23]
