On 8 July, 2021 the Student Association for the Center for the History of Hermetic Philosophy and Related Currents (HHP) will host a livestream lecture from VOX-POP in Amsterdam. The lecture features Dr. Joel Bordeaux, research fellow at the International Institute for Asian Studies at Leiden University. His presentation is titled, ‘Taking the Left Hand Path to Tibet: Traditionalism, Tantric Buddhism, and the Question of Conversion in a Post-Satanist Milieu’.
Dr. Joel Bordeaux is a specialist in South Asian religions and is interested in how political authority, canonical works of literature, and esotericism mediate differences between communities.
The event aims to garner online viewers from near and far, and a small number of attendees will be able to enjoy a reception following the event in VOX-POP.
This event is sponsored by the HHP and organized by Master’s students L. Faith Pramuk, Misha Kakabadze, and Tjalling Janssen. For more on our speaker, visit https://www.iias.asia/profile/joel-bordeaux. For a recording of the lecture, email email@example.com.
