My entrance essay for college was about reviving the importance of the Norse Gods. Since then I have been doing intensive exploration.
I feel it is incredibly relevant and important in modern culture. As Durkheim said, "The old gods are growing old or dying and the new ones have not been born." I believe that the new gods are not being born but reborn from the religions of the past.
I am a second year anthropology student at the University of Chicago interested in doing ethnographic research on Neo-paganism.
