Contributing to Bloomsbury’s Cultural History of Magic

I have just signed a contract with Bloomsbury Publishing to contribute a chapter to a new six-volume Cultural History of Magic due to be published in 2021. I shall be writing the chapter on ‘Authorities and Control’ for the volume on The Age of Enlightenment, edited by Dr Andrew Sneddon, which covers the period 1650-1800. The chapter will examine the ways in which both church and state attempted to control the practice of magic in this period, as well as the different models of authority adopted by magical practitioners for their own activities.
