Tertulias Fredericton is back this fall with a pop culture edition. On October 13, Andrew Moore discussed the early modern witch trials and explored what early modern English attitudes towards witchcraft can tell us about the emergence of modernity and about modern politics. The talk is now available for viewing here.
Andrew Moore is an associate professor of Great Books at St. Thomas University. He has published research on a variety of subjects including television, social media, and liberal arts education, but his research focuses primarily on early modern literature and early modern political thought.

What is a tertulia? A tertulia can be described as a kind of philosophy café where participants talk about big thinkers, artists and ideas. This winter and spring, Tertulias Fredericton has put together a series on activists and social movements that have shaped our lives and allowed us to imagine a better future.
Tertulias Fredericton is supported by the NB Media Co-op, publisher of videos of the Tertulia talks.
