About the speakers

Arjan Sterken teaches Comparative Religious Studies at Radboud University. His research focuses on the supernatural. This is fertile ground for projecting the fears and desires of many cultures across time and space. Arjan is concerned with this process, the process of Othering, within mythology and folklore, and primarily within India and the Germanic area.

Arjan's research helps make the Dutch horror film Witte wieven possible. Watch the trailer.
