Witch Hunts Through History

Obeah Opera, Hell’s Fury, and Today

Obeah Opera follows the tribulations of the Salem Witch Trials, while Hell’s Fury: The Hollywood Songbook focuses on Hanns Eisler’s life during the McCarthy era. With the term “witch hunt” still being thrown around in today’s political climate, we look at what this really means throughout history. Thought leaders and academics will discuss what systemic structures need to be dismantled in today’s world and how we can learn from our mistakes to build a more inclusive society where this kind of vilification doesn’t happen anymore.

Prior to the forum we will be hosting Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four, a documentary film about four women in America facing their own contemporary witch hunt as part of our Illuminating Ideas series.
