Steele Alexandra Douris, author and Victorianist, specializing in Victorian Spiritualism, crime fiction, and the gothic novel joins us for a fascinating look into this era. How many people view the paranormal today stems from the Spiritualist movement of the 19th century. Seances, mediums, and paranormal investigation were all born during this time. Steele’s new book, “Spirits, Seers & Seances: Victorian Spiritualism, Magic & the Supernatural” is the perfect introduction to this time. Available wherever books are sold! Steele is also a Ph.D. candidate in the English department at Stanford University, where she has taught courses on 19th-century spiritualism and ghost stories. She holds an MA in English from Stanford University and a BA in anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin.
