Did you miss our first symposium in April 2010? Or maybe you were with us, but wish you had taken better notes that day? Never fear, the proceedings from the National Heritage Museum's 2010 symposium, "New Perspectives on American Freemasonry and Fraternalism," were recently published as volume 2, number 1 of the Journal for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism. This special issue was guest-edited by Aimee E. Newell, Ph.D., the Museum's Director of Collections, and includes five of the papers presented at the symposium, the keynote address, "Worlds of Brothers," by Jessica Harland-Jacobs, as well as several book reviews and other material. The table of contents for the issue is accessible online.
As the first academic journal dedicated to scholarly contributions in the field of Freemasonry and fraternalism, the JRFF is intended to create a bridge between different traditions of scholarship. For more information, and to order copies of the journal, visit its website!
