On behalf of The Interpreter Foundation, I’m pleased to announce that Kristine Wardle Frederickson has accepted an invitation to serve as one of the Foundation’s vice presidents and as a member of its Board of Trustees.
Dr. Frederickson received her Ph.D. in history from the University of Utah, where her dissertation explored religious underpinnings in the activist efforts of the nineteenth-century British Christian feminist Josephine Butler. She is currently an adjunct professor at Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University, teaching religion as well as world, European, and American history.
Dr. Frederickson writes and presents on a wide range of doctrinal and historical topics, individuals, and events in Latter-day Saint, American, and European history, as well as on human trafficking—women and children in sexual servitude. She is the author of Extraordinary Courage: Women Empowered by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and is currently readying a book on trafficking for publication. She also writes a column for the Deseret News that focuses on the international Church and LDS Church practice and doctrine, and has been a regular participant on the Interpreter Radio Show.
We are delighted at her willingness to help with the work of The Interpreter Foundation.
