SES2015 Schedule Button 2

The Ghost Wore Black: Victorian/Edwardian Paranormal Obsessions

GHOSTWOREBLACKCOVERthumbnail1-199x300Presented by Chris Woodyard

As a writer on the ghosts of the past, I rescue from obscurity the oddities, the ghosts, monsters, and wonders that haunted our ancestors.

This is a presentation about those haunting obsessions. My sampling of paranormal preoccupations of the 19th and early 20th centuries will include the banshee-like Women in Black, spook lights, death omens, fiery devils, ghostly animals, angels of death, and much more.

Speakers:

Chris Woodyard has been writing and speaking about ghosts and hauntings since 1991 in her Haunted Ohio series and her Victorian/Edwardian Ghosts of the Past series.
