The Association for the Study of Esotericism (ASE) is seeking paper and panel proposals for its third International North American Conference on Esotericism to be held at the College of Charleston, in Charleston, SC. The conference includes both the humanities and social sciences, with contributions from Anthopology, History, and Religious Studies.
We are seeking proposals on topics in Western Esotericism, particularly related to themes exploring the relationship between esotericism, religion, and nature. Papers may focus on any one of these topics or on a specific conjunction of topics especially as it relates to esotericism. We are also interested in other topics in the study of esotericism and invite proposals on magic, alchemy, astrology, ritual practice, esotericism and mysticism, spiritualism, occultism, hermetic thought, neo-paganism, contemporary esoteric movements and teachers, Asian influences on Western traditions, and other related topics.
If you wish to submit a paper proposal for review and possible presentation at the conference, please send it by regular email to ASEconf2008@yahoo.com.
The deadline for panel or paper proposal submission is 15 December, 2007.
