From Mystique to Politique: Scholarship, Mysticism, and Politics in the Twentieth Century

Working group at MLA Convention 2023 | 06.-08.01.2023

Scholars from across a wide disciplinary and geographic range investigate the cultural politics of the twentieth-century study of mysticism, aiming both to radically historicize the figures in question—returning these studies of mysticism to the historical backdrop against which their cultural politics arose—and to give due attention to the metaphysical elaborations that these scholars set out to forge. Part of the working group is Andreas Niegl with a talk on his research paper Struggles Beyond Reason: Contemporary Dialectics of the Conservative Revolution & Evola’s Neoreactionary Heirs.

This working group is part of the MLA convention 2023.
