Snow White: Evil Witches
19 November, 2020, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This is an online event.
The Brothers Grimm’s tale of Snow White has been retold dozens of times in print and the cinema over the past two centuries. A central character is the Evil Queen, Snow White’s malevolent stepmother, who tries to kill her with the help of the occult. Ageing women have often been portrayed as Evil Women. What do portrayals of the Evil Queen tell us about witchcraft, fears of the power of ageing women, and the valorisation of youth, beauty, and domesticity?
This Gresham College lecture (free public lectures since 1597) by Professor Joanna Bourke is part of a lecture series about “Evil Women”.
