Ursula Masson Memorial Lecture 2012

The 2012 Ursula Masson Memorial Lecture was given by Professor Jane Aaron, professor of literature and former co-director of the Centre for Gender Studies.

Her lecture examined the representation of the witch as heroic avenger and wise woman in many Welsh Gothic fictions, and consider to what extent these unusually positive representations of witches may be linked to the role of the mother goddesses in early Celtic culture.
