Paulina Gruffman is a PhD student at Lund University. Her research is primarily historical (from the mid-19th century to contemporary time) focuses on esotericism, occultism, new religious movements, and “New Age” spirituality. She’s particularly interested in how these groups’ activities and writings intersect with popular and academic understandings of religion, as well as the historiography of the academic study of religion in general.
