Current research

I'm a cultural anthropologist. My current research focuses on the connection between arts and esotericism. I currently investigate the trans-culturally inspired art in the case of Theosophy; the role played by the anonymity of the artist (mediumistic production and art as a form of service); and the concept of art as device for social improvement.
