Feminism, Radicalization, and Injustice: The Enduring Power of the Witch Narrative
2016-04-26 17:08:45 GMT
"One thing that has become clearer and clearer in recent years is that violent extremisms are not created in a vacuum, but rather by human beings whose moral thresholds have been altered, often by resistance to societies that are failing them. In this context, reconsidered witch narratives like The Witch, van Hove’s production of The Crucible, and even the silly, sensationalistic Salem seem like cautionary tales for ignorance toward this phenomenon. The supernaturalism becomes real in the midst of accusation."
