The study of conspiracism overlaps with the study of esotericism, occultism, and magic in several respects.  In addition to the frequent significance of secrecy and clandestine interactions in the history of esoteric, occult, and magical movements, their association (real or imagined) with heterodox religious movements, political subversion, and intelligence organizations has led to close association of these conceptions with each other in popular cultural imagination as well as in their own subcultural milieux.  Esotericists, occultists, and magicians have themselves engaged in conspiracist conception, generated conspiracy theories, and projected them onto others, as well as themselves being the recipients of such projections by both religious and secula

"Tantra" has the distinction of being one of the few conceptions that simultaneously refers to intensely esoteric and antinomian systems of traditional mystical, magical, and occult practice deeply rooted in and contextualized in cultural specificity while also being used to describe popularized receptions that variously narrow its focus, broaden its scope, secularize it, moralize it, sanitize it, demonize it, and diabolize it.  Sometimes popular conceptions also associate its practice with variant interpretations of concepts such as the "Left-Hand Path" that themselves have accrued a considerable range of both emic and etic significances frequently at odds with one another.  Unlike abstractions such as the "Left-Hand Path," Tantra has retained a common t

For a prospective peer-reviewed cluster on Modernism/modernity’s Print Plus platform, we seek proposals for original essays that analyze the role of art and culture in building modern worlds in the aftermath of revolutions. Situated within the discourse of global modernisms, the transdisciplinary cluster probes whether there is something intrinsic to the post-revolutionary reconstructive moment that can be teased out through focused studies on contemporaneous constellations between the aesthetic and the political around the globe during the twentieth century.

Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005-08) and its sequel The Legend of Korra (2012-14) are among the most acclaimed and influential animated television series of the twenty-first century. Yet, there has been little scholarly writing about them. To remedy this gap, I am looking for contributors for an edited volume of essays on this franchise.

The book will be designed for a general undergraduate readership, covering a range of topics in relation to the Avatar franchise. These include (but are not limited to):

“‘Getting lost’ still takes us somewhere; and being lost is a way of inhabiting space by registering what is not familiar: being lost can in its turn become a familiar feeling [...] The familiar is an effect of inhabitance; we are not simply in the familiar, but rather the familiar is shaped by actions that reach out toward objects that are already within reach.”
