  2. The Devil’s Juggles: Witchcraft Accusations in 17th-Century New England

    October 19, 2018, 12:15 PM - 12:45 PM @ Amherst History Museum Simeon Strong House

    Was the Connecticut River Valley really free of what Cotton Mather called the Devil’s “juggles”? In the latest in our ‘History Bites’ lunchtime lecture series, on Friday, October 19th, Professor Michael Thurston of Smith College will provide a survey into the appearance of witchcraft in the seventeenth-century history of Valley towns and villages, pointing out familiar patterns of accusation. Why did the phenomena that resulted in witch hunts in Salem often manifest as spiritual Christian ‘awakenings’ in the Connecticut River Valley? History Bites is a series of thirty minute lectures to inform and entertain, covering various aspects of the history of Amherst and the lives of those who once lived here. Bring your lunch, and we provide coffee, tea and cider for you as you listen to the presentations. The programs begin promptly at 12:15 with seating and beverages ready just before noon. The lectures are free and everyone is welcome to attend.

  3. Repair Public: Fixery through Community

    October 21, 2018, 12:00 PM - 3:30 PM @ Hitchcock Center for the Environment

    Repair Public is an exercise in community resourcefulness. The basic idea is to encourage people to learn how and/or where to fix broken items instead of tossing them into a landfill and buying replacements. The participants and facilitators are local community members just like you. You bring a broken item that you want help repairing as well as a willingness to try to fix it. There will be repair facilitators on-hand to help you figure out how to fix your treasure, each with one or more areas of specialty. We’ll have various tools available for use, as well as some basic supplies like screws, tape, glue, wire nuts, needles, threads, and probably appliance cord with some plug-ends. With all these ingredients, we intend to help you repair whatever you decide to bring in. FREE Registration and donations appreciated at hitchcockcenter.org
