Project Title: New edited book. Title: Contemporary Pagan and Native Faith Movements in Europe: Colonialist and Nationalist Impulses.

The manuscript for this book was submitted to the publisher, Berghahn (New York), in November 2013. This edited volume examines diverse Pagan and Native Faith movements throughout Europe. Sometimes side by side, there are reconstructionist groups with intensely local concerns informed by nationalistic impulses - particularly in post-Soviet Europe - and other groups which take their cue from British or American originated traditions such as Wicca, Druidry, Goddess Spirituality or Harner's Core Shamanism The case studies show how these impulses intersect and collide demonstrating the importance of local cultural, environmental, historical and political contexts in determining local expressions of modern Paganism.

Project Title: Archaeology of Spiritualities

The volume Archaeology of Spiritualties provides a fresh exploration of the interface between archaeology and religion or spirituality. Archaeological approaches to the study of religion have typically, and often unconsciously, drawn on Western paradigms. For many of the world's peoples, however, sacred experiences in relation to sacred landscapes - and beings connected with those landscapes - cannot be accounted for using such paradigms. The volume asks how such experiences might be discerned in the archaeological record. How do we recognize and investigate other forms of religious or spiritual experience in the remains of the past? The volume's contributors explore critically and reflexively the encounter between archaeology and diverse cultural expressions of spirituality.
