The Supernatural in History and Culture: Witches, Ghosts, Vampire and More

Thursday, October 27 through Thursday, November 17
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at FAU, Boca Raton

Various alleged and mostly evil supernatural entities have plagued humanity from Ancient to Modern times as humans have sought to explain the inexplicable. Today, at least fifty percent of all American adults believe in at least one supernatural creature despite contradictory scientific evidence! This series will explore "Things that go BUMP in the Night!" Demons, Vampires, Ghosts, Zombies, and Witches will be examined both cross culturally and historically in Western and non-Western societies, including how religious and political bodies have sought to rid us of them through punishment, death, or exorcism. Today, stories of these "monsters" continue to terrify and thrill us. We will look at how our fear and fascination of the supernatural continues to feed and sometimes calm our terror through classic literature, books, film, and television. These events are also available virtually.
