Butler, Alison - Memorial University History Victorian occultism; western esotericism. My two-year SSHRC-funded research project will examine how contemporary developments in science affected the evolution of Victorian occultism. This program of research will explore how occultists attempted to make their field more “scientific” in response to the rise of scientific naturalism and how the resulting refashioned form of occultism proved to be more conducive to association with the emerging science of the mind, psychology.

Cavanaugh, Ted - Dalhousie University Ted's research is interdisciplinary, in a way that architects have always practised, relating building, community, culture, technology, and everyday life; and it combines the contemporary practice of design, the history of technology, and material culture. One concentration in vernacular building construction considers the impetus for innovation within conventional practices. Another concentration in community design involves working in teams with ocean and coastal managers, scientists, and community groups to combine expertise in areas of community networks, integrated resource management, and spatial planning.
