EXPLORING THE EXTRAORDINARY 2011

 

3rd CONFERENCE

FRIDAY 23rd – SUNDAY 25th SEPTEMBER, 2011

 HOLIDAY INN HOTEL, YORK

 CALL FOR PAPERS: Since its inception in 2007, members of Exploring the Extraordinary have organised two very successful academic conferences that have brought together researchers from a variety of different disciplines and backgrounds. The purpose of these events has been to encourage a wider dissemination of knowledge and research, and an interdisciplinary discussion of extraordinary phenomena and experience. By ‘extraordinary’ we refer to phenomena and experiences that are considered to be beyond the mundane, referring to those that have been called supernatural, paranormal, mystical, transcendent, exceptional, spiritual, magical and/or religious, as well as the relevance of such for human culture.

 Keynote Speakers:

 Prof Charles Emmons

Dr Serena Roney-Dougal

 We are delighted to release a call for papers for our third conference, and would like to invite presentation or poster submission on topics related to the above. Please submit a 300-500 word paper abstract, or poster proposal to:

 Dr Madeleine Castro and Dr Hannah Gilbert (ete.network@gmail.com)

by the 4th April 2011.

Papers should be no longer than 20 minutes in length and intended for an interdisciplinary audience. Please include contact information and a brief biographical note.

 Additionally, we would like to invite contributions to an exhibition that will also be held during the conference. The theme of the exhibition will be organised around two broad themes: ‘Nature, twilight and the night’ and ‘Dimensions of Spirit’. We would like to invite submissions of any of the following: artwork; photography; research images; research footage, moving images or short films (of no more than ten minutes in length and with copyright clearance if necessary). Please feel free to get in touch to discuss any ideas beforehand. The deadline for exhibition submissions is also 4th April, 2011.
