Witches: Representations & Retellings

This is a past event.

Witches have long been trapped in a narrative that paints a picture of a long nosed, hat wearing, broomstick-borne bearer of misfortune and practitioner of magic.

Join us virtually for Witches: Representations & Retellings as Aparna Dwivedi explores the witch figure in literature and society.

Aparna will lead the investigation in tracing the sociohistorical context of witches as well as individual witch narratives like Tituba, the black witch of Salem, and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Aparna will take us through an analysis of these literary works and fairy tales/folklores to help us liberate witches from the historical discourse surrounding them.
