HxCanada | Symposia Session - Loki Is My God: A Taboo Arbitrage of Vikings and Scholars
Public interest in the history and culture of medieval Scandinavia is growing; yet as a result of the ideological reprogramming of modern academia, scholars in the humanities are increasingly ill-equipped to understand pre-modern cultures such as that of the famous Vikings. Contrasting the absurd taboo structure that intellectually imprisons many of the most educated people in our society, with the taboo-violating trickster god of Viking society, Loki, can help reveal the purpose and cultural function of taboo structures in the first place.
