PAPERS Application

Do you have a research interest in polytheistic or Pagan subjects? Have you contemplated sharing that research with others in an academic environment? Both academics and citizen scholars are welcome to present in Mystic South’s PAPERS tract.

We ask that you submit your abstract and your vita (yes, it’s okay to just use “citizen scholar” if you are not in an academic field).

What can we offer you? Your presentation grants you free admission to the Mystic South 2023 conference. We also offer you a place to publish your research paper on the Mystic South website!

  • All PAPERS will be up to one hour in length.
  • All PAPERS presentations are open to all attendees at our conference, regardless of race, sexuality, gender identity, tradition, etc.
  • Mystic South may elect to restrict participation in some PAPERS to attendees 18 years of age or older based on the nature of the research.
For the health and safety of our community all presenters, vendors and attendees are recommended to receive the Covid-19 vaccination, but will not be required to show proof of vaccination at registration. You will need to present a valid, government issued ID in order to attend Mystic South 2023. Masks are optional.

NOTE: Our PAPERS application period ended on February 28, 2023 @ 11:59pm Eastern Time.
