Mod+ Jack Hunter at Esalen


In October 2013 I co-convened, with Prof. Jeffrey J. Kripal and Prof. David J. Hufford, a four day international conference on the theme of ‘Anthropology and the Paranormal’ at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. Inspired by the remit of the journal Paranthropology (which I established in 2010 - see, we invited fifteen scholars from anthropology, religious studies, folklore and psychology to discuss the potential contributions of these interrelated disciplines to the investigation of paranormal beliefs and experiences.
Jack Hunter posted short interviews with some of the conference participants and posted them here. Each individual was asked what advice they would give to young people just starting out in academia who are interested in in doing parapsychological research.
