Dr. Patrick Jung presents
Anthropology of Witches and Witchcraft

​Witches and Witchcraft: An Anthropological Examination
Popular images of witches in movies such as The Wizard of Oz and shows such as Sabrina the Teenage Witch have shaped our perceptions of witches for almost a century. Of course, most people have heard of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, and they may even know about similar “witch hunts” in Europe about the same time. However, witches can be found in many societies around the globe. This presentation looks at the cultural forces that have shaped beliefs concerning witches and witchcraft in many cultures throughout history.
Dr. Patrick J. Jung is a professor of history and anthropology at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Dr. Jung received his doctoral degree in United States history in 1997 from Marquette University, and he has written and researched extensively on Indian-White relations in the North American Great Lakes region. He has also researched and published extensively on German art history, particularly German industrial art from 1875 to the present and German art during the Nazi era from 1933 to 1945.
