Viewpoint 104


Issue 104 explores the shifting relationships between the natural and supernatural worlds, across time and across the globe. There are two feature articles: Christine Ferguson commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Great War by discussing Oliver Lodge’s spiritualistic testimonial, Raymond (1-4); and Joydeep Sen reveals the fascinating history and mythology behind Mumbai’s engineered landscape (8-11). Our object of the issue is another liminal figure: the mermaid. Ross Macfarlane discusses recent research on a popular and puzzling museum artefact (6-7). Elsewhere, Laura Dawes reports on how BSHS support enabled her to investigate wartime public health research in bomb shelters (5). Charlotte Bigg is our interviewee (15).
