ENSIE Call for papers for for ESSWE7

​ENSIE is again organising panels for the biannual conference of ESSWE, which in 2019 will be in Amsterdam from 2 July to 4 July. The theme of the conference is "Western Esotericism and Consciousness: Visions, Voices, Altered States," and the ESSWE Call says that "paper and session proposals will go through a careful selection procedure so as to make sure that the final program will have a sharp focus on the conference theme."

Proposals are therefore invited for papers dealing with any aspect of Islam, esotericism and consciousness. ​ENSIE will then assemble proposals into proposals for sessions, and forward these to ESSWE. Each session will have four papers.

Proposals of max. 300 words should be submitted by 1 September 2018 to Mark Sedgwick, The ESSWE deadline is 1 October 2018, and the ENSIE deadline is designed to allow time to meet this.
