Pagan Studies in the Academy

A list of papers to be presented at the Pagan Studies program unit of the American Academy of Religion annual meeting in November is posted on the Pagan Studies web site.

The AAR has not yet published its program book with times and places; that information will be added as soon as it becomes available.

Dear Chas,

Now if you and your fellow scholars could just relocate this whole programme to Britain, I'd be very happy.

I have today handed in my MA (in History) dissertation on the origins of Wicca, most of which ended up being about the challenges facing academics in undertaking any study of Wicca.

Good luck with the conference and I wish I could be there.

I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a new blogger who found out about you from the gentleman behind Wild Hunt, and figured I should say hello before adding your blog to my list of links on Red Raven's Roost.

Best of luck with the conference.

Actually, the first conference on Pagan Studies was in the UK, at the U. of Lancaster, I believe. Look around!
Or hop a plane to Philadelphia: your money will go farther here.


Thanks for the link. I'll check your blog.

Greetings, Chas:

I was wondering if the papers given at the Pagan Studies conferences may be found published anywhere? Just skimming over the titles of the 2005 conference has me wishing that I could read 'em, and perhaps add 'em to my own library as a source worth eventually citing in some of my own up-coming writings.

Take Care,
Wade MacMorrighan

The papers from the 2003 Pagan Studies conference (before we had official program-unit status) were published in the May 2004 issue of The Pomegranate: The International Journal of Pagan Studies. However, that is not done automatically. People who present papers at conferences may or may not rework them and submit them to a journal. I will be revising my "flying ointment" paper for submission, but of course I cannot guarantee that it will be published.
