Early Modern MA Workshop at Lancaster Castle

Date: 10 February 2014 Time: 10.00am-12.00pm

Venue: Lancaster Castle

Capturing Witches

This seminar will investigate the documents and the sites that were used to 'capture' so-called witches in Lancashire in the 1612 and 1634 trials and in the literary reworkings of those trials, notably in Thomas Potts's Discovery of Witches in Lancashire (1613) and Heywood and Brome's comedy The Late Lancashire Witches (1634). The seminar will begin in one of the upper dungeons in Lancaster Castle, and will include a descent to the witches' dungeon where the 1612 victims were held, interrogated and tortured.

This seminar is for students doing the 'Politics and Place' module on the MA in English Literary Studies. Alison Findlay will be in touch with students regarding this event, but please email her at the address below for more information.
