Unlimited Communication. Spiritist networks and spirit-mediation 1880-1930

Project: DissertationIndividual research project


In my doctoral dissertation I examine the spiritist movement in Sweden between 1880 and 1930, from a theoretical media- and communication perspective, in order to understand the movement’s relation to the time's ideals, religion, art and women’s entrance into society.

My approach is twofold, which means that I, on the one hand, investigate the spiritist (media)networks and on the other hand the mediation in itself, as well as its existential dimensions. My base is a rich source material, consisting of e.g. correspondence, newspapers, spiritist magazines and books, seance protocols, spiritistic art and spirit photography.
