Macabre at MHL: Witches, Pop Culture, and the Past

Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 7:00 pm

In 1692 in Salem, MA, 19 people were executed and hundreds imprisoned during a witch hunt we still discuss today in everyday conversation, pop culture, and American literature. History, tourism, and performance collide when Salem tells its witch stories. "Truth" -- both moral and macabre -- vies with spooky thrills for its authentic place in history.

Presented by Dr. Robin DeRosa, Associate Professor of English at Plymouth State University. Author of The Making of Salem: The Witch Trials in History, Fiction and Tourism.
