Please join us for the final Utopia / Dystopia event of the season. This installment will explore a variety of encounters between the living and the dead; from accidental hauntings to deliberate conjuration of ghosts, and everything in between.
The evening’s three speakers, Dr. Alexander Cummins, Jesse Hathaway Diaz, and Mallorie Vaudoise, will examine folk expressions and interrelations of ancestor veneration, spirit conjuration, ghost-lore, eschatology, charm-craft, demonology, and the mass of rituals, protocols, and beliefs signalled by the terms ‘nigromancy,’ ‘necromancy.’
• How to Summon A Ghost in Seventeenth-century England by Alexander Cummins
• The Corpse between the Covers: Summoning the Dead through Ink and Breath (But Not In The Way You Think…) by Jesse Hathaway Diaz
• Naples is for Necromancers by Mallorie Vaudoise
The event will take place from 7 – 10 pm
