Q&A with Thomas Robisheaux

(09/04/12 10:32am)

Thomas Robisheaux, Fred W. Schaffer professor of history, has research interests that include parapsychology and witchcraft. He is the author of an book chronicling a woman accused of witchcraft in a German smalltown in 1672. Just last month, Robisheaux delivered the annual J.B. Rhine banquet address at the 55th Annual Parapsychology Convention, detailing the historical pathway of the development of parapsychology—the branch of psychology dealing with such paranormal phenomena as clairvoyance, precognition and telepathy. The Chronicle’s Ashley Wong spoke with Robisheaux about his work.
