Round-table Workshop

Modernity and Esoteric Networks:Work in Progress and Future Directions

Date & Time : March 11, 2017, 2:00 pm-5:00 pm

Venue : Seminar room 1, Institute for Research in Humanities (Jinbunken), Kyoto University

Language : English

This workshop is a follow-up to the conference held on March 7~8 in the National Museum of Ethnology (Minpaku), Osaka and planned as a meeting for sharing and discussing each participant’s work in progress in a more relaxed atmosphere. Marco Pasi will talk about the early period of the theosophical movement in Italy (1890s-1910s) and Joscelyn Godwin will introduce his project of translating the papers by the UR Group led by Julius Evola. Other topics will include Alexander Russell Webb and Buddhism, the esoteric and political connections of Mirra Richard in Japan, and the case of Hari Prasad Shastri who taught yoga and Zen in London. We welcome those who are interested to know more about leading-edge research on modern esotericism in the West and the East.
