Online | Why History? The History of Magic

Synopsis

Sharing insights from the past that help us to make sense of the present.
 
Three great strands of practice and belief run through human history: science, religion, and magic. But why has magic – the idea that we have a connection with the universe – developed a bad reputation? In this event, Chris Gosden explores the role of magic in shaping civilisations and how we might use it today to rethink our understanding of the world.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText.
