The Archive Project
For the last 60 years, the Parapsychological Association has hosted an annual international convention gathering scholars and scientists to present the latest and most advanced scientific thinking about topics in parapsychology, publishing its papers as a Proceedings and in a series called Research in Parapsychology. To celebrate our 60th year the PA is raising funds to digitize these volumes and make them freely available to the public, releasing tens of thousands of pages of previously inaccessible research for the first time...but we need your help to make it happen.
60th Anniversary Celebration in Columbus, Ohio
We'll be kicking off our 60th year with a 1.5 day celebration at our office in Columbus, Ohio on June 16-17th. The weekend will begin with a reception at the Upstairs Arts Space on Friday night and a day of talks on Saturday, followed by a banquet dinner at Bleu & Fig. All proceeds from both the fundraising campaign the and weekend celebration will go toward funding our archive project, so your registration donation will be valued for generations to come.
