Prof Wooffitt's PhD Graduates published

Two of Prof Robin Wooffitt's PhD graduates have had chapters published in a new book.  Talking with the Spirits is edited by Jack Hunter and David Luke and includes chapters by both Dr Hannah Gilbert and Dr Tamlyn Ryan.

Talking With the Spirits is a cross-cultural survey of contemporary spirit mediumship. The diverse contributions cover a wide-range of ethnographic contexts, from Spiritualist séances in the United Kingdom to self-mortification rituals in Singapore and Taiwan, from psychedelic spirit incorporation in the Amazonian rainforest, to psychic readings in online social spaces

The book is available for purchase on Amazon.co.uk
