4 april Symposium "Identity and Tradition in Contemporary Paganism"
Op 4 April vindt het Symposium "Identity and Tradition in Contemporary Paganism" plaats van 19.30-22.00 in het Lipsius 228.

On April 4, the Leiden Institute for Religious Studies organises the symposium Identity and Tradition in Contemporary Paganism. As speakers we have invited two young scholars who are both working on a PhD dissertation on the negotiation of identity in pagan groups in the Netherlands and abroad.

The first speaker, Miranda Huivenaar (Leiden University), will present some preliminary findings from her research on the search for identity in the Scandinavian (and Dutch) Ásatrú community. Ásatrú is a branch of contemporary paganism which attempts to reconstruct the Nordic/Germanic tradition.

The second speaker, Léon van Gulik (Tilburg University; Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences), will talk about his research on Greencraft, a Flemish Wiccan community. He will focus on how the group negotiates a balance between the particularly Celtic roots of Wicca and a broader vision of paganism as Europe’s indigenous religion.

The symposium is part of the course Introduction to New Religions within the BA programme in Religious Studies and embedded within the BA-specialisation track New Religious Movements, but it is open to all interested, both from within and outside the university.
