Caught by the River

Women in Print: Witchcraft and the Popular Press 1920-1990

10th April 2015


Delving into witchcraft, this day long study looks to establish how women’s contribution to 20th c. popular print culture described and framed ideas about the occult. In association with Manchester School of Art and The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, this is the third event of a ‘Women in Print’ series.

Contributing speakers come from a wide range of disciplines and practices – Literature, Anthropology, Design, Art History and witchcraft itself; the day will offer a diverse and interdisciplinary consideration of the role of print media in shaping our collective understanding of witchcraft.

Folklore Tapes (David Chatton-Barker and Ian Humerstone) will be talking about their experimental fieldwork and research into Theo Brown and the Folklore of Dartmoor, before conjuring up a magical multimedia performance to end the day’s proceedings.

The event takes place at the National Trust building in Boscastle, Cornwall, on Saturday 11th April 2015 from 9.30 am – 4.30pm.
