This lecture from November 2012 is part of the Faculty Center lecture series entitled “My Journey as a Scholar of Faith.” This series is an effort to hear from faculty members how they came to teach and research in a way that is both spiritually strengthening and intellectually enlarging. We welcome your comments at the bottom of this page.
Dr. Susan Easton Black joined the faculty in 1978. She is a past Eliza R. Snow Fellow, Associate Dean of General Education and Honors, and Director of Church History in the Religious Studies Center. She was the recipient of the Karl G. Maeser Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award in 2000, the highest award given a professor on the BYU campus. She has authored, edited, and compiled over 90 books and as many articles. Dr. Black, Susan, is a favorite of students. She loves students and they return the favor. They pack her classes and struggle to take notes fast enough to keep up with her inspiring lectures given without notes and seemingly without taking a breath. She is the wife of the late Harvey B. Black.
