‘She’s running on grief and magic.’ – Xander, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Join researcher and scriptwriter Hari Berrow to explore a selection of witches in Folk Horror, and to consider how Post-Traumatic Stress has informed the creation of their narratives.
Fully illustrated talk followed by Q&A with the speaker.
