HIS 251 Witchcraft in the Early Modern World


3 credits

This course examines the socio-political, cultural, and economic factors that precipitated the development of witchcraft “outbreaks” in Early Modern Europe, Latin America, and North America.  Through lectures, readings, and classroom discussion, students will encounter and compare different theoretical interpretations of witchcraft accusations in the Atlantic World and will evaluate these historical perspectives against primary source evidence.
