Dr. Derek Lee, the inaugural Ingo Swann Research Fellow, will present The Paranormal Mind in Twentieth-Century Literature and Science on Tuesday, September 11, at 7:00 p.m. in Ingram Library. His program is sponsored by Ingram Library’s Special Collections which holds the Ingo Swann papers and book collection.

Derek Lee is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Penn State University, where he received a Ph.D. in English Literature. His research areas include twentieth and twenty-first century literature, science studies, epistemology, and the occult.

The Ingo Swann Research Fellowship was established in honor of artist, author, practitioner and teacher of remote viewing, Ingo Swann, to advance scholarship in the field of parapsychology and to encourage use of the parapsychology collections in the University of West Georgia, Ingram Library’s Special Collections in unique and creative ways. The Fellowship was generously created through a gift made by Ingo Swann's family in 2016.

Dr. Lee’s talk will reveal how archival sources and their rare materials – including those of Ingram Library’s Special Collections – have formed the basis of his research.

There is no admission fee for this program. Beginning at 6:00 p.m., special public parking is being provided in the Townsend Center Gated Lot. For further information, visit or contact or (678) 839-5455.
