The second issue of Correspondences will be out very soon! While you wait you may want to start thinking about issue number 3. We’re always interested in high quality submissions (5,000-10,000 words) on subjects related to the academic study of Western esotericism, but we just wanted to let everyone know that those interested in publishing in issue 3 will need to be submit by 1 June 2014. We’re also accepting unsolicited book reviews. If you would like to query the editors before submitting, please contact Aren Roukema or Jimmy Elwing at firstname.lastname@example.org. For book review queries, contact Egil Asprem at email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conference 2014 “Religion and Pluralities of Knowledge”
The deadline to submit panel proposals for the “Religion and Pluralities of Knowledge” conference, 11-15 May 2014 in Groningen, is fast approaching. Conference organizers tell us they are interested in panels related to esoteric forms of knowledge, so think about submitting ideas for a panel by 15 October. Individual paper proposals are due 1 December 2013. The conference is co-hosted by the Dutch Association for the Study of Religion (NGG) and the European Association for the Study of Religions (EASR).
Correspondences recently acquired an ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) and as a result we had to replace the files of issue 1, no. 1 (2013). If you have linked our PDFs from your webpage or blog, please note that you will have to change the url to the new one. In the coming months we will make Correspondences available in scholarly databases and search engines, and we’ll keep you posted about our progress here and on our Facebook page.
Ever wonder who the editors of Correspondences are and why they decided to start an open access journal for the study of Western esotericism? Check out this interview with Ethan Doyle White!
