In recent years, the need to lay a harmless gloss over witchcraft has faded, as more people embrace the figure of the witch as a subversive, transgressive, and even dangerous force. The diabolical images of magic workers across history that were once shied away from are now being embraced. But to what end? This lecture will discuss subversive images and instances of the witch through history, giving us threads of inspiration to cultivate our own power for personal and political change.

About the Presenter:

David Salisbury (he/him) is a Baltimore/DC based witch with 25 years of experience and an initiate of the Anderson Feri tradition of witchcraft as well as the O.T.O. As an author of multiple books on the magical arts, David teaches both privately and at festivals and conferences around the country. His work primarily focuses on magic as a subversive act meant to unshackle our power and presence from the oppressive forces of society.
