Reviews

“I found the book to be compelling and fascinating. Some of the authors’ evocative writing drew me into the … stories which resonated with my own family.” • Gresilda A. Lilley-Tubbs, Virginia Tech

Description

The Familial Occult addresses the presence of occult experiences in some scholars' families and how that has affected their epistemological and ontological worlds, as well as their identities as scholars. Those with backgrounds in the familial occult often experience a series of conflicting relationships and different ways of interacting with binaries such as the subjective and objective, a powerful conceptual couple still governing academic thinking. While much has been written on encountering the occult in fieldwork or becoming an apprentice in an occult practice, little yet has been published in the academic literature about growing up with the occult.

Alexandra Coțofană is Assistant Professor of Social Sciences at Zayed University in Abu Dhabi. Prior to joining Zayed University, she held a Lectureship in History and Anthropology at Butler University.
