Volume 6 of Correspondences: Journal for the Study of Esotericism

Friday, April 27, 2018 - 12:45pm
Correspondences: Journal for the Study of Esotericism
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 27, 2019


Submissions are currently being accepted for Correspondences: Journal for the Study of Esotericism

Correspondences is an international, peer-reviewed online journal dedicated to the academic study of esotericism. The editors acknowledge that the use of this umbrella term for a widely variant field of alternate scientific and religious ideas is problematic. Correspondences therefore maintains an openness toward varying interpretations of the boundaries of the field of esotericism and encourages submissions from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, such as History of Religions, Sociology, Art History, Philosophy, History of Science, Literature, Musicology, and Cultural Studies.
