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.
