Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course examines the history of witchcraft, magic and forbidden versus approved belief in the trans-Atlantic world from 1400 to 1700. We will begin in Europe and then turn to Spanish America and New England to examine the contributions of Africans and Native Americans to both the practice and ideas of witchcraft. Special focus will be given to the role of the devil and the ways that gender influenced decisions to condemn or accept ideas about magic and nature.
