Dr. Andreea Marculescu of the OU Dept. of Women's and Gender Studies presents "The Wicked Witch of the West: Brooms, Black Cats, and Stolen Babies." for the Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series, cosponsored by the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. The stereotypical representation of a witch is that of an old, often physically impaired, childless female who is accompanied by a black cat, carries a broom, and plots to inflict evil" in the world. This talk will explore the historical origins of such portrayal tracing it back to medieval theological discourses about demons, women, and heretics.
The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is Co-sponsored by OU's Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies. Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no tests, just interesting information about life long ago.
