Slavic folklore is full of female characters who continue to be referenced in contemporary culture. Are they healers or sorcerers, warriors or cunning peasants, blessed with supernatural powers or endowed with sound common sense? The BNU, in partnership with Arsmondo, examines the women and witches of Slavic folklore in a discussion with specialists in Bulgarian, Serbian, Ukrainian and Russian cultures from the University of Strasbourg.
With Livija Ekmecic, Victoire Feuillebois, Katerina Tarasiuk and Miryana Yanakieva
