(MENAFN - The Conversation) Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History,

I am Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History at Cardiff University. My research focusses on the history of witchcraft, and I am particularly interested as to why and how early modern people - from ordinary villagers to university professors - believed in witches, and whether, how and when they acted on their beliefs. I am currently writing a book on a witch-hunt that took place in the French Basque country in the early seventeenth century.
