I’ve previously mentioned the Mapping the Occult City pre-conference, but now that the speakers list has been finalized I thought I’d mention there’s involvement from a number of people you may be already familiar with from the library including Hermetic Library fellow M Dionysius Rogers, anthology artist David B Metcalfe, and frequent contributor to the visual pool Rik Garrett. So, not only is the conference itself sounding pretty interesting in and of itself, there’s a lot of great people involved as well. If you’re in Chicago or can get there, the pre-conference is Friday, Nov 16th, and does not require AAR membership to attend or participate.
I’ve previously posted about Mapping the Occult City, a pre-conference for the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Religions, on Fri, Nov 16, 2012 in Chicago, and just heard that Michael Bertiaux has been added as a speaker.
“Michael Bertiaux is an American occultist and Old Catholic Bishop, known for his book Voudon Gnostic Workbook (1988), a 615-page compendium of various occult lessons and research papers spanning the sub-fields of Voodoo, Neo-Pythagoreanism, Thelema and Gnosticism. He will be sharing memories of his many years in the occult scene of Chicago.” [via]
