Abstract

In an age of new media start-ups, corporate consolidation, waning government regulation, military suppression of civil dissent, abbreviated textual communications, and destabilized gender identities—that is to say, in the latter half of the nineteenth century—spiritualism enabled its participants to bridge the gaps and disruptions that permeated everyday experience.
