Call for Papers - Paranthropology (Vol. 4 No. 3) - July 2013

Dear all,

Submissions are now open for the July 2013 issue of "Paranthropology: Journal of Anthropological Approaches to the Paranormal" (Vol. 4 No. 3).

See for past issues. 

Articles can be on any topic relating to:

Paranormal/Supernatural/Spiritual/Religious belief/experience, Magic, Parapsychology, Afterlife Research, etc., Mediumship, Shamanism, Occultism, etc., Psychedelic experience, Extraordinary encounters in the field (particularly focussing on the ethnographic interpretation and presentation of extraordinary experiences), General issues in the anthropology of consciousness, religion and experience...

Although anthropological and ethnographic approaches are central to the journal (and it would be nice to see more ethnographic submissions), we also welcome contributions from other disciplines including folklore, history, sociology, psychology, parapsychology and indeed any discipline which has an interesting contribution to make.
