Pagan and Polytheist Educational Research Symposium – 2022

Abstract Review Guidelines

The goal of the P.A.P.E.R.S. review guidelines is to provide consistency among reviewers and support the development of P.A.P.E.R.S. programming to:

  • Provide high quality, original research concerning Pagans and polytheists and their communities
  • Ensure content is relevant and timely
  • Reflects diversity of practice in the Pagan/polytheist community
  • Reflects a balance between research, practices, issues and concerns, and education


P.A.P.E.R.S. invites abstracts related to any Pagan and/or polytheist faiths in their practice, science, history, culture, and relations to other faiths and institutions/systems for the 2022 Mystic South Conference to be held July 15 through 17, 2022 at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia in Atlanta, GA.

We are interested in presentations that focus on the mysticism and magical practices of Pagans and polytheists in America, tackle larger concerns affecting our collective communities, discuss the history of Paganism in America, or share the diversity of practice and culture within our mystical world.

Come experience and share in the culture of American Paganism and Polytheism!


All P.A.P.E.R.S. presentations should be a minimum of 30 minutes in length. All presentations are open to all attendees at our conference.

For the health and safety of our community all presenters, vendors and attendees are required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination with a valid, government issued ID in order to attend Mystic South 2022

Our application period ends on February 28, 2022 @ 11:59pm Eastern Time. Any abstracts submitted after that date will be considered for a future Mystic South P.A.P.E.R.S.
