Witches, Pop Culture, and the Past

October 3, 2014

"Hang her!" cries the raucous spectator. In 1692, nineteen people were executed in Salem and hundreds imprisoned during a witch hunt we still discuss today. Robin DeRosa explains that when Salem tells its witch stories, history, tourism, and performance collide, and "truth," both moral and macabre, vies with spooky thrills for its authentic place in history.

Funded grant project of the New Hampshire Humanities Council.  The New Hampshire Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
