Welcome to the website for ‘Supernatural religion in the age of empire’, a one-day conference at the University of Antwerp in which we aim to bring together research on supernaturalism in colonial and imperial contexts. So far, scholarship has largely remained impressionistic, touching upon single case studies. This conference wants to begin bringing these impressions together and to think about how we can construct systematic approaches to studying imperial dynamics in supernatural phenomena.
