Don't forget that we have a Travel Bursary available for members presenting papers relevant to our interests at conferences.  (It can be any conference).

The Societas Magica Newsletter, established (1995) by Richard Kieckhefer and now edited by David Porreca, is printed twice yearly for members of the Societas Magica. The editor invites queries from scholars who would like to propose contributions to the newsletter. Additional Help

Lead articles are typically 1500 to 2000 words and cover recent research in the history of magic and related topics. Smaller pieces for the notes and queries column are also welcomed; these might include news about dissertations in progress or recently completed, manuscript discoveries, or other such items. Proposals for articles or notes on topics of potential interest to members of the Societas Magica may be sent to David Porreca.

You can search for a single word or multiple words. A multiple word search will find newsletters that have all words specified within a distance of 200 characters of one another.

Note: for text searching purposes all diacritical characters have been replaced with their standard keyboard characters. Additional Help
