Occult Talk: Riding the Witch Wave

Occult Talk: Riding the Witch Wave

From the broomstick riding witches of medieval times to the witch hunts of the 17th century and the “witchsploitation” cinema of the 1960s and 1970s, this talk explores the origins of this gendered stereotype as well as the cultural renaissance and the modern allure of the female witch.

At the heart of this inquiry is the question: What makes a witch?

About Occult Talk:
The Occult Talk is a gathering meant as a round table style to discuss together a proposed topic.
The aim is to break the usual schema of having a teaching figure and intimidated students. We want to make the occult less elitist, so anyone can feel free to participate no matter how much experience they have.

Talk hosted by Réka Komáromi
