Mediumship is a rich and varied social phenomenonthat exists in one form or another on everycontinent. As such it cannot be understood from asingle perspective. The aim of this issue of 
Paranthropology 
is to examine mediumship from avariety of perspectives, academic and experiential.To this end we present anthropological,parapsychological, historical and spiritualisticperspectives alongside each other, which makes fora fairly holistic approach to the subject.In this issue Michael Tymn gives us an insightinto the history of survival research, StanleyKrippner introduces us to Brazilian spiritist practices(Candomble, Umbanda and Kardecismo), Jon Meesdescribes a recent physical mediumshipdemonstration at Jenny’s Sanctuary, FabianGraham describes an unusual encounter withmediumship in Singapore, Sara Mackian discussesmethods for engaging with the otherworldy, SophieLouise Drennan explores the sociological aspects of Victorian Spiritualism, Michael Evans gives aninsight into his life’s experiences with Spiritualism,Callum E. Cooper discusses the “science andstruggle of psi research”, Dr Jochen Soederlinggives a detailed phenomenological account of theectoplasm purportedly being produced by the FelixExperimental Group in Germany, and KristenGallerneaux Brooks introduces us to themediumship investigation equipment on display atthe American Society for Psychical Research.In addition to all of this we have a fascinatingfeature with contributions from a wide range of mediumship researchers explaining why they feelthe investigation of mediumship is a worthy causethat will benefit our understanding of bothourselves as human beings and the world we livein. And much more besides...We hope you enjoy.
