Looking ahead to our Witch Cults event, I would like to throw the spotlight on one of our key speakers, Professor Diane Purkiss.
Diane Purkiss is Professor of English literature at Oxford University and fellow of Keble College, and you can’t get much more Gothic than that. She has published widely on witchcraft, fairies, ghosts and other otherness. She also wrote a trilogy of fantasy novels with her son Michael Dowling which focus on Greek monsters and retell Greek mythology from the monsters’ point of view. The title of her talk for Witch Cults is –
Who’s Scary Now? Scottish Witches in the Realms of the Dead.
