She was editor of Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought from 2008–2016. As part of her application for that job, she wrote, "Many, many people long for a way to acknowledge the flaws of the church, to think and speak critically about silly aspects of our culture, and assess the inevitable mistakes of human leaders trying to interpret God's will, while still affirming the essential goodness of Mormonism. I've battled through some of the big issues—gender roles, homosexuality, intellectual freedom, historiography—and managed not just to stay in, but to stay happily.”[1]

Haglund is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints She is preparing a short introduction to the intellectual legacy of Eugene England for the University of Illinois Press’s series on Latter-day Saint thinkers.
