When we talk about witches in pop culture, we’re also talking about the representation of representation of women in pop culture. She has been used as a cautionary tale, and has been reclaimed by women and feminist scholars as a figure of female empowerement.  

In recent years, from the remakes like Suspiria, Charmed and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and original films like The Witch, The Love Witch, Hereditary and more, the figure of the witch has permeated the public consciousness once again.

In this event, we deep dive into the myriad of forms the witch has taken in film and television, from the romantic heroines of I Married A Witch and the goth teens of The Craft, television depictions of witches in Sabrina, Charmed, True Blood and American Horror Story and the witchploitation of the seventies, as well as some of questions that arise around representation, sexuality and empowerment.

Join us and an array of expert speakers to discuss all witchy things.

Full line-up to be released.

Presented by The Final Girls.

Part of HERE BE WITCHES, an exploration of the witch in film and TV through a season of films, discussions and a brand-new podcast.
