Neopaganism and Witchcraft


Neopaganism and Witchcraft investigate the religious phenomenon loosely called Neopaganism – an inventive mixture of New Age religions, Witchcraft, Druidism, Wicca, Earth Religions, and non-Native American Shamanism. The course focus on practices principally in Europe and the United States for a particular set of reasons. Christianity and its pagan others have played a critical role in the history of modern European and American imagination of the nation-state. Race, religion, and native soil are key aspects of neopaganism's embattled self-concept, particularly in the context of globalization and the perceived menace of multi-ethnic West.
