King's University Public Lecture: Beyond Purity and Promiscuity, Rethinking Women’s History. October 18, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm via zoom. From the Salem Witch Trials to the Victorian era, to late twentieth-century purity culture, women have frequently been depicted at the extremes; as dangerous temptresses or innocent angels.

Join Dr. Caroline Lieffers as she analyzes the power and politics behind these images and the vulnerability, complexity, and humanity of the real women beneath.
