Freemasonry Lecture: 'When Armenians built Auschwitz: notes on late Ottoman Freemasonry and genocide' by Ugur Ungor

The triumph of nationalism destroyed the multi-ethnic Ottoman political and social order and replaced it by nation-states. Many explanations attributed the mass violence to a devious conspiracy between (crypto-) Jews, Freemasons, and Turks against Greeks and Armenians. Ugur Ungor argues that these pseudo-explanations are a product of two processes: one of competition between victim groups, and another of intellectual secularization. Lecture given 13 November 2008 for the Centre for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism.

Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe: Seminar 22: Witches on Stage (and Screen)

Witchcraft was more often represented on stage in the Jacobean period than at any other time. In this seminar we are interested in what impact such plays are likely to have had on their audiences; whether the relationship to the witchcraft that we have now studied is an accurate one (and, where relevant, how the dramatists used contemporary cases of witchcraft to give them their dramatic material), etc. Prepared for the special subject module: Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe.

Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe: Seminar 18: The Crime of Witchcraft: Radical Doubters

We tend to imagine that there was a consensus of beliefs about witchcraft and the powers of the devil, with that unity beginning to break down only towards the end of the seventeenth century under the impact of the scientific movement and the scepticism of the early Enlightenment. This seminar challenges these assumptions by showing that there was no real consensus earlier on. The seminar focuses specifically on Reginald Scot and John Webster.

Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe: Seminar 15: Continental Comparisons: Witchcraft in Lorraine and Bavaria

Collection

Hull Fair, Fun for All DVD Collection 6: Later Years

Hull Fair is the greatest travelling fair in the country. The Hull Fair Project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, has brought together memories and images from the citizens of Hull and the travelling showpeople. Between January 2004 and July 2005 over 60 interviews were conducted and more than 600 images were recorded forming a remarkable snapshot of the relationship between the city and the fair over the course of the 20th Century. The sixth and final collection contains interviews, photographs and videos from the fair since the 1960s, with some more general thoughts about the longevity of Hull Fair. This resource was created as part of the National Fairground’s project, ‘Hull Fair, fun for all’, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund in association with Hull City Council (see http://www.hullfair.dept.shef.ac.uk). The resource is the copyright of the National Fairground Archive, University of Sheffield (http://www.nfa.dept.shef.ac.uk/) and has been made available with their permission.
