We are seeking presentations related to ideologies of 'blood and soil' and white nationalism in recent radical political movements, and engagements with this in contemporary Paganism and Heathenry. Questions to address might include but not be limited to: what is the significance of religious identity, ancestry, and connections to land in these movements; how are concerns related to authenticity, legitimation, and "imagined community" involved in these narratives; and what implications does this suggest for developing attachment to place, and bioregional identity in settler and other populations?
