Dear Members and Friends!

I am writing to tell you about the 14th Annual Conference on Comparative Mythology, titled Death and Migration in World Mythology, which will be held online via Zoom from August 23-27. It will be an excellent conference full of interesting and stimulating ideas.

The International Association for Comparative Mythology is the sister organisation of the Traditional Cosmology Society and both I, as current President, and Emily Lyle, as President Emeritus of the TCS, will be presenting papers at this conference. Additionally, among the people giving papers are also those who have presented at TCS events in the past. Please see the program for dates and times.

To participate as an audience member, ask questions, and contribute to the discussion, please register using this form.

The conference fee is $10 for participants from US, Canada, Australia, EU, EEA, Switzerland, Israel, and Northeast Asia; $5 for students and participants from all other regions.

If  you cannot pay the conference fee online or are unable to pay due to financial hardship and still want to participate in the conference, please write to this address:

Please note that a Zoom link to the conference sessions will only be sent to those who register.


Minutes from 2019-20 AGM now available

At the end of August, the Traditional Cosmology Society held its 2019-20 Annual General Meeting and elected a new Committee. As was announced in the original notice, the minutes from the meeting are now (finally) available for those who could not attend. We especially invite all e-members, as well as those who could not make it to Edinburgh, to take a look, and let us know if they have any comments/suggestions/opinions/cosmological musings!

Please follow this link to access the .doc transcript of the minutes.

Annual General Meeting 2019

Members of the Traditional Cosmology society are invited to attend our Annual General Meeting on Friday 30th at 50 George Square, Room 2.14, Edinburgh, 15:00 – 16:30. E-members who wish to participate remotely should contact the Society beforehand at, so that a video-link can be arranged.

Over the past twelve months, a number of departures have left crucial positions within the Committee open. It is a great opportunity for new and
returning Members to become more involved in the running of the Society, and help to make our calendar of events more diverse and accessible to all.

Now more than ever therefore it is important for all our Members to make their presence felt, and offer their views and suggestions on the future of our Society.

Here is the tentative agenda for the meeting:

  • Welcome and Apologies
  • Minutes from the last AGM
  • President’s (Chair’s) Report
  • Treasurer’s Report
  • Election of the Committee
  • Membership Campaign for 2019-20
  • Expansion of Commitee
  • A.O.B

Minutes will be circulated after the meeting for those who could not attend.
