In this talk, Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum exposes the shifting nature, not only of understanding images of historic Scandinavians, but also white nationalists' agendas and aesthetics. Tracing the growth and subsequent decline of celebrations of Vikings in white nationalism during recent years, Teitelbaum highlights the transforming image of Scandinavia from being a beacon of white identity to being one of liberal decline.

Benjamin R. Teitelbaum earned his PhD at Brown University and is Assistant Professor of Musicology, International Affairs, and formerly Head of Nordic Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder.
