Modern Racism & the Vikings

Mord Hrutsson

Over the last few years white supremacist groups have used Viking Age symbols as part of their hateful ideology. More disturbingly, these racist groups have sought to join and recruit in historical organizations such as the SCA. Mord Hrutsson has looked into and studied this phenomenon, and will discuss what symbols used, the history of racism and the use of the Viking Age, and what he thinks we should do about it. All are welcome.

Writing our Own History: The Administration of the SCA

Regnulf of Crakehale

While our focus is rightfully on the parts of this hobby we enjoy, a sprawling organization, as any ancient empire, functions on the strength of its bureaucracy. The documents we produce should be relevant, informative and useful to those who follow after us. We will look at four distinct documents and examine ways to make them useful now and in the future. In this class we will examine Meeting Minutes, Bylaws, Policies and Procedures and the structures of each. Students will be encouraged to bring documents they would like reviewed, ask questions and collaborate on ways to improve how we record our own history.

Recommended Materials: Writing materials, any branch documents they might like reviewed, a willingness to ask questions.

1 hour
