Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
- demonstrate critical, historical and reflective thinking;
- demonstrate a broad and coherent body of knowledge of the historiography of witchcraft in Europe in the later middle ages;
- analyse primary source documents and present a clear, coherent and independent exposition of knowledge and ideas;
- discriminate amongst the crucial developments in the evolution of witchcraft and demonstrate an understanding of the topic as an historical issue in the sense of seeing witch hunting as a cognitive construct for understanding medieval Europe;
- apply critical thinking skills and an understanding of historical events, persons and ideas to explain their significance in the development of witch hunting; and
- apply well developed cognitive skills and judgement to compare the early modern phenomenon with the modern world: ie McCarthyism, the post-9/11 world, and the 'war on terror'.
