Profs & Pints: Witches and Witch Hunts

March 4, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

$10 – $12

Profs and Pints presents: “Witches and Witch Hunts,” with Mikki Brock, assistant professor of British history at Washington and Lee University and scholar of demonology, witchcraft, and early modern Scotland.
Last summer, Donald Trump tweeted that he was the victim of “the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history!” Critics of the #MeToo movement have warned of a “Salem atmosphere” in Hollywood and beyond. But what does it really mean when men in positions of power claim to be victims of a “witch hunt”? And what about the real history of the witch trials, which claimed the lives of tens of thousands of women in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Europe?
Come explore the history of the witch hunts— real and rhetorical— with Mikki Brock, teacher of a class on witch-hunts at Washington and Lee and author of Satan and the Scots: The Devil in Post-Reformation Scotland, c.1560-1700. (Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door.)
