The quirkily titled ‘Charming and Crafty’ conference was a three-day event, exploring expressions of Witchcraft and Paganism in the media. Hosted by the Harvard Film Archive, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA and sponsored by the Committee on Degrees in Folklore and Mythology at Harvard University and the Department of Visual and Media Arts, Emerson College, Boston, this was the first international academic conference of its kind. It brought together scholars, filmmakers, authors and media specialists to discuss the range of different portrayals of Paganism, Witchcraft, magic, and the occult in the media. The meeting was called to explore the depictions of Paganism and Witchcraft in film, television and other media from the 1900s to contemporary times.
