New Book Reviews Editor!

There’s a new addition to the Correspondences family. No, Aren and Jimmy aren’t having a baby. Rather, we’re happy to announce that Dr. Egil Asprem of UC Santa Barbara will take on the position of Book Reviews Editor as of March 2014. Dr. Asprem recently completed doctoral research at the Centre for the History of Hermetic Philosophy and Related Currents at the University of Amsterdam, where his dissertation, entitled “The Problem of Disenchantment: Scientific Naturalism and Esoteric Discourse, 1900-1939,” earned him both the 2013 ESSWE PhD thesis prize and the Gerardus van der Leeuw prize, awarded by the Dutch Association for the Study of Religion (NGG). He was recently awarded the prestigious Veni and Rubicon awards by the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). We are excited to have Dr. Asprem aboard, and look forward to a more robust Reviews section than has previously been featured. Correspondences continues to accept unsolicited reviews, which can be submitted by email to
