Shining A Light Into The Past Through Runic Studies

Loraine Jensen, founder and president of the American Association for Runic Studies, has dedicated years to promoting the responsible, scientific study of runes and runic inscriptions, in collaboration with Uppsala University's Department of Scandinavian Languages. In recognition of her efforts, Ms. Jensen was recently awarded the pedagogical prize from The Royal Gustavus Adolphus Academy for Swedish Folk Culture. During this presentation, she will describe her recent Fullbright Specialist project in Sweden and ongoing efforts to raise public awareness of these ancient guide lights into the Scandinavian culture.

Organization Details:

Nearly 90 years ago, a new immigrant to Minnesota had a vision to create a vibrant cultural gathering place. Established in 1929, ASI has evolved into a dynamic arts and cultural center that welcomes all people to gather and share experiences around themes of culture, migration, the environment, and the arts; informed by enduring links to Sweden. From the gallery spaces, featuring local and international exhibitions, to the lively programming set in the historic Turnblad Mansion, to the shop, and award winning restaurant and café – there are many ways to see yourself at ASI and be part of this story.
