This discussion, led by Victorian fiction and period drama scholar Dr Kate Byrne, will explore one of the most popular gothic themes on television today: witchcraft. Any search of Netflix will reveal a wide number of shows, retro and current, about witches, which range from comic and light-hearted family dramas (BewitchedGood Witch), to the dark and subversive (American Horror Story) to the romantic (A Discovery of Witches). We will explore the appeal and versatility of these shows and what they reveal about gender and class past and present, as well as our continuing craving for viewing magic in everyday life.
