CFP for a one day conference, ‘Magical Practice and Belief, 1800 – present’, on 25 April 2003 at the University of Bristol.
Humanities scholars working in the field of magic have few opportunities to meet and develop their mutual understanding of a complex range of religious, historical, and literary phenomena. Major literary, philosophical, and religious figures and movements of the past few centuries were indebted to various aspects of magical practice and belief. This conference will provide a venue for encouraging new scholarship that cuts across a range of disciplines as well as new scholarship in particular disciplines that would be of interest to other scholars of magic. This will be an interdisciplinary conference that will make the study of magic available to a broad range of interested scholars.
Abstracts of 250 words are invited.
Confirmed speakers include Ronald Hutton, Owen Davies, Jo Pearson, Melvyn Willin, and Hannah Sanders.
