The ESSWE4 conference website has just been launched, and registration for the conference is now open. Browsing through the list of accepted papers you will see quite a few papers dealing with aspects of contemporary esotericism.
We are also happy to announce that a special ContERN roundtable has been planned, where we will continue the theoretical and methodological reflections on contemporary esotericism started in Stockholm last year. The roundtable will include the specialists of modern and contemporary esotericism Wouter J. Hanegraaff, Marco Pasi, and Henrik Bogdan (who is also the conference organizer), with a special appearance of new religious movements scholar Massimo Introvigne. More information later!
