Waking the Witch: Reflections on Women, Magic, and Power
September 24, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
In Waking the Witch (Gallery), podcast host and practicing witch Pam Grossman explores the cultural and historical impact of the world’s most magical icon. From the idea of the femme fatale in league with the devil to the bewitching pop culture archetypes in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Harry Potter; from the spooky ladies in fairy tales and horror films to the rise of feminist covens and contemporary witchcraft, witches reflect the power and potential of women. Waking the Witch is a whip-smart and illuminating exploration of the world’s fascination with witches.
