Halloween: It’s Nothing to Be Afraid of

Friday, October 27, 2023 @ 12:00pm
Native American Studies Center

From a Celtic day of the dead to contemporary America’s celebration of all things spooky, Halloween has a rich and diverse history. From a folklorist’s perspective, Dr. Stephen Criswell, USCL Director of Native American Studies and Professor of English and Folklore, explores the origins and development of the holiday of Halloween as a pre-Christian festival, a Christian holy day designed to help convert early Europeans, and a contemporary carnivalesque celebration for children and adults.
