Marina Alexandrova on Blavatsky

Even via Zoom, my first appearance before a Theosophical history audience in almost three decades evoked anxiety. But then the first genuine academic scholar to follow me on the program left me feeling much more confidence in “Blavatsky studies” regardless of the obstructionism of Theosophical organisations. Research continues in Russia and Ukraine despite all the disruptions caused by warfare, so I hope progress can be reported in future despite the current atmosphere of vandalism and interethnic hatred. Here is Marina’s faculty web page at UT Austin.
