Anne Kalvig is Professor of Religious Studies, University of Stavanger, Norway. Her research focuses on contemporary spirituality, popular and hybrid forms of religion and mediatized religion. She will present the research project "Back to Blood: Pursuing a Future from the Norse Past", which investigates why there is a cultural and spiritual craving for Vikings and the Norse past today. How does this relate to current concerns of sustainability/ green future, identity and citizenship? And how does Midgardsblot fit into this picture? Kalvig also encourages the audience to make their opinion heard through a couple of digital polls during the lecture.
