Eastern and Central Europe has been an area of growth for ESSWE in recent years. Now a new regional network is joining the fold and representing ESSWE more firmly on the ground in the region: the Central and Eastern European Network for the Academic Study of Western Esotericism (CEENASWE) will be launched officially this summer. A Facebook page carries an invitation and call for papers for this event. For non-Facebook users (I hear they still exist), I attach the information below:
The East-Central European members of ESSWE (The European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism) have decided to establish a branch organization,
CEENASWE – Central and Eastern European Network for the Academic Study of Western Esotericism
To mark this development, the official launching of CEENASWE will include a scholarly colloquium, hosted by the CENTER FOR RELIGIOUS STUDIES OF THE
CENTRAL EUROPEAN UNIVERSITY in Budapest, on 4-5 July (Friday-Saturday), 2014, highlighting the theme
WESTERN ESOTERICISM IN CENTRAL- and EASTERN-EUROPE – OVER THE CENTURIES
20 minutes’ paper proposals should be sent to Karolina M. Kotkowska email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org (with author’s affiliation and a short abstract) by April 15, 2014.
There will be no registration fee and budget accommodation in the dormitory of CEU will be offered.
