“Dr. John Montague was a doctor of philosophy; he had taken his degree in anthropology, feeling obscurely that in this field he might come closest to his true vocation, the analysis of supernatural manifestations.”
From “The Haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson
I wish that seances could be held for fictional characters. If so, I would introduce the fictional Dr. Montague to Dr. Jack Hunter, another anthropologist whose latest book is “Manifesting Spirits.” No doubt the two would get along famously.
Since you cannot be present at that seance, listen to Seriah’s interview with the articulate and knowledgeable Dr. Hunter as he tells of the decade of research that preceded the writing of this book, his participation in seances with the Bristol Spirit Lodge, the differences between mental and physical mediumship, and how our beliefs and culture manifest in the material world.
Dr. Hunter’s website, detailing his books, articles, credentials, affiliations and areas of research.
