    Bonus Episode: Experiencing the Uncanny: the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic

    Bonus Episode: Experiencing the Uncanny: the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic

    As promised, Dr Helen Cornish (Goldsmiths, London) is back to discuss the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle, Cornwall. In her talk she explores how contemporary witches navigate the ‘unfamiliar’ by experiencing the uncanny through magical consciousness as part of their occult practice. By focusing on St Nectan’s Glen, the labyrinth of Rocky Valley, and the witch memorial of Joan Wytte, Cornish explores how modern witches intellectually rationalise their sense of place, and ‘find themselves’ through childlike ideas of imagination.

    Ep. 33: History's Female Pirates: Mary Read, Anne Bonny, and Grace O'Malley

    Ep. 33: History's Female Pirates: Mary Read, Anne Bonny, and Grace O'Malley

    The history of piracy is steeped in legend, full of myth and fantastical stories. But what if I told you that some of these stories are based on actual facts? In this contraband portion of our ‘Controversies and Contraband’ series we explore the hidden world of female pirates through Mary Read, Anne Bonny, and Grace O’Malley, and how their origin stories in England and Ireland led one of them to ‘switch sides’ and join Queen Elizabeth.

    Bonus Episode: The art world’s hidden figures

    Bonus Episode: The art world’s hidden figures

    In this month’s bonus episode, Dr Banu Karaca, talks about the darker side of the art world through the eyes of its hidden figures: gallerists, art collectors, and corporate sponsors (sometimes referred to as neo-liberalists) in Istanbul (Turkey) and Berlin (Germany). With the history of art steeped in state violence, Karaca’s anthropological approach to understanding the art world provides us with an inward glimpse of the gatekeepers who possess and mediate how the public sees (and gains access to) art.

    In the words of Karaca, ‘to know about art is to know about power.’

    *If you want to learn more about Dr Karaca’s work, make sure to listen to Episode 28: Nazism, art, and questioning free speech.

    Ep. 32: Controversies & Contraband series: Cancel vs. Call-out Culture

    Ep. 32: Controversies & Contraband series: Cancel vs. Call-out Culture

    What are the differences (if any) between cancel versus call-out culture? And what sort of effects can cancel culture have on an individual through the lens of social media? In this one- hour episode, Dr Wand sits down with consulting anthropologist and founder of Culture Contact, Helidth Ravenholm, to discuss the multi-layered consequences of online bullying through social venues like Twitter and Reddit. ‘The road to hell’ so it is said, ‘is paved with good intentions.’ Could the same be said of social media and its support of cancel culture?

    Ep. 31: The Gothic suppression of Victorian women: a look into ‘A Gothic Cookbook’

    Ep. 31: The Gothic suppression of Victorian women: a look into ‘A Gothic Cookbook’

    Controversies & Contraband series:

    Alessandra Pino (aka: Allie) is the co-author of ‘A Gothic Cookbook’ and in this episode we explore the hidden world of the Gothic Victorian era. While her book focuses on the ‘relationship between food and the supernatural’, there are other elements to Gothic literature that connect food to violence, the oppressed roles of women, historical suppression, and servitude.

    With the Halloween season almost in swing, her work would be a wonderful addition to creepy-crawly type literature, from Frankenstein to Dracula, alongside Anne Rice’s ‘Interview with a Vampire’…

    *We apologise for some of the sound quality in places. It must have been ghosts interfering with our technology 😉
