Encounters with Witchcraft

African sculpture

African Witchcraft and Healing, an exhibit based on Norman Miller's book, Encounters with Witchcraft: Field Notes from Africa, includes 70 photos, maps, documents, art objects, and a video made by African students.

Shown at Dartmouth College's Baker-Berry Library for several months in 2012, the exhibit was curated by Norman Miller and designed by Dennis Grady. Two related exhibits ran concurrently: Witchcraft Art, Devil Art, and Makonde Art, in Sherman Art Library, and Solutions to Witchcraft Violence, in Berry Library Room 183.

Miller has produced seven books, all on Africa, plus some 28 educational films for the National Science Foundation. He is one of America's early African area specialists, having spent 12 years in East Africa in the course of 26 research and teaching trips. He has taught at Dartmouth since 1980 in Community and Family Medicine and the Environmental Studies Department.
