Reclaim the Runes: Separating Viking Mythology from Hate Groups
January 20, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
With the resurgence of Nordic culture back into the mainstream, so comes with it a stigma of racism and fear. Why are we seeing Odin’s Runes at hate speech rallies? Is the person wearing the Thor’s Hammer a neo Nazi? Were the Vikings inherently racist?
The Simple answer is “No” The Complex answer is what we’re going to talk about, and how we can further divorce Nordic culture from a co-opted, sinister past.
Back by popular demand following his “Vikings in the Media” and “Norse Cosmology” presentations here at the beer hall, join historian, researcher, storyteller and general bad-ass Sean Prather for a night of separating Nordic culture from malevolent, misinformed hands.
This is a free presentation to attend.
