405 | Which Witch is Which? The Power of Representation in the Salem Witch Trials
This week, hosts Amalie Hutchinson and Meghan Voll interview PhD candidate Caroline Diezyn about their dissertational research on three plays depicting the Salem Witch Trials. In this episode, Caroline talks about the myths and facts about the Salem Witch Trials, and the ways real historical character Giles Corey is represented. Caroline also talks about why these representations matter today, and what they say about how we remember the history and events of Salem.
