In other news. Unfortunately, Nancy Zingrone and her colleagues' proposal to start a Masters of Arts in Parapsychology program at Atlantic University was rejected.

Yes, and all the more unfortunate given that anyone who attends the AU conference will find that it is just as scholarly as any program you are likely to find at any top-rated university in the world. The only difference is the nature of the topic, which isn't supposed to be a consideration in academia, but of course it is.

A bit off topic, but Dean, apart from Dick Bierman in the Netherlands, do you know of anyone else in Europe that is active within experimental psi-related research and has a physical science background (physics or chemistry)?

Indeed, a professor that has read my application to a Ph.D program now laugh as soon as he see me.
There is however no bad feelings between us, he just seem to think that I am "amusing but deluded"

Walter von Lucadou. Bernard Carr and and Brian Josephson also, but they aren't active experimentalists.

Jens Aage Tellefsen at Kungliga Tekniska högskolan in Stockholm has a background in physics and is interested in parapsychological research.

Dean and Nemo, thanks for the info!

This is such distressing news! I just completed Principles of Parapsychology with the thought it would be the foundation of a degree in Parapsychology. So, now it looks like I'll be back looking at Transpersonal Psych again.
