My work focuses on the social and cultural significance of alternative spiritualities, belief in the paranormal, and countercultural discourses. In recent years, I have sought to articulate a theory of ‘occulture’ in order to explain the persistence of such ideas in the modern Western world and the influence of popular culture in the shaping of those ideas. I am particularly interested in the importance of popular music in this respect. I co-edit the series Studies in Popular Music (Equinox) and Studies in Religion and Popular Music (Bloomsbury).
(1) Countercultures and alternative spiritual discourses.
(2) Occult and paranormal cultures.
