Work is Magical

Dr Angela Puca recorded on 03/03/23

Dr Angela Puca joined Leeds Trinity University in 2016 and has lectured there and at other universities on Philosophy and Religious Studies. Angela’s degrees are in Philosophy, focusing on Asian Philosophies.

During her academic formation, she studied Latin, ancient Greek, Sanskrit, and Tibetan (classical and modern) to translate primary sources of interest from different philosophical and religious traditions. During her master’s degree, she expanded her knowledge in the field of Religious Studies, especially Buddhism and the Indian and Tibetan religions, at the University of Naples, Italy.

Afterwards, her research moved towards Paganism, shamanism, and their contemporary manifestations across the Italian peninsula.

The University of Leeds awarded her a PhD in Anthropology of Religion in 2020 as a result of her research on “Indigenous and Trans-cultural Shamanism in Italy”.

Author of several peer-reviewed publications, a forthcoming monograph on Italian shamanism and folk witchcraft to be published with Brill and co-editor of the forthcoming ‘Pagan religions in five minutes’ for Equinox, she hopes to bridge the gap between academia and the communities of magic practitioners by delivering related scholarly content on her YouTube Channel, TikTok and other social media via her project called ‘Angela’s Symposium’.

About the Podcast

Working Hours
The Story of Work in Leeds in the 2020s
What do you do?
Western Studios, Leeds presents Working Hours: a podcast series surveying the people of Leeds on their thoughts and feelings on the topic of work. I want to talk to my city about work. Why do we do it? Do we like it? What could we do differently? What will we? How does work change and how does it change us?
Leeds, the largest city in the largest county on the UK mainland, is a former imperial textile centre and is now a major UK financial centre. This series will document the city’s experiences through Lockdown, Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and continuing resource wars, the ongoing dismantling of the welfare state and our accelerating ecological emergency.
If you are in Leeds or from Leeds then help me to reach my target of interviewing 1000 Loiners over the 2020s. Let me ask you, what do you do?
