The most recently issue of The European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism’s newsletter is out and available for free download!
Here’s a few introductory comments from Editor Chris Giudice:
Dear members of ESSWE, welcome to the Winter 2018 issue of the Newsletter,: it is an issue I am particularly excited about, for it really reflects the interdisciplinary direction that the field has undertaken in recent times. The publications showcased in this edition have risen from the usual two to for, and this is a clear indicator of the state of health of our field, and the prolific nature of ESSWE members as authors. The scholar interviews section has been retained, as are conference reports, this time coupled with an inspiring review of an occult art exhibition held at Palazzo Roverella in Rovigo, Italy. A call for papers for two intriguing special issues of Pomegranate: the International Journal of Pagan Studies have been inserted, as I feel that both themes covered by these upcoming studies will be of interest to many readers of the Newsletter. Finally the classic section dedicated to upcoming conference in the new year has been substantially extended. In closing this editorial, I urge those who will attend conferences in the upcoming months to write a short report, take some pictures and aid the Newsletter in its mission to inform ESSWE members on news concerning the vibrant Western esoteric academic milieu.
