Dr. Myra Houser, associate professor of history at Ouachita Baptist University, presented her paper, “Baptists and Social Concern.” during the Baptist International Scholars Roundtable in August 2021.
"Dr. Houser has become one of the most prolific scholars at Ouachita,” said Dr. Chris Mortenson, chair of the Department of History at Ouachita. “Myra's ability to relate research interests to her faith—while also producing yet another presentation and book chapter—reflects very well on the Department of History. We are proud to call Dr. Houser a colleague and friend."
Houser chose to write on the subject after her work on the anti-apartheid movement was supported by colleagues including Ian Cosh, Ouachita’s former vice president for community and international engagement, who once worked in South Africa and had several papers from the Baptist Union there.
