The university of Waterloo is featuring an exciting exhibit on magic in antiquity and modern contexts. Curated by Dr. David Porreca and Dr. Frank Klaassen. the exhibit looks at the links between pre-modern and contemporary magic.
From the website:
University of Waterloo’s own Dr. David Porreca in collaboration with Dr. Frank Klaassen (University of Saskatchewan) are proud to present a new exhibit on the magical intersections between the medieval and modern worlds. Porreca’s fellowship and the exhibit “Magic Ancient and Modern: Materials and Imagination” were funded in part through the support of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Culture and Creativity (ICCC) at the University of Saskatchewan. The exhibit runs Sept 11th – Nov 24th at St. Jerome’s University College in the 2nd floor library. Klaassen and Porreca have designed modern digital interpretations of eight historic examples of pre-modern magic and made them accessible to all for the next few months in Waterloo following a very successful run at U Sask this Winter.
