Six Questions XVIII: Jennifer Snook

Jennifer Snook is an American sociologist and heathen. Snook is perhaps best known to date for her 2015 book American Heathens: The Politics of Identity in a Pagan Religious Movement, an in-depth study of adherents of Germanic Heathenry in the United States.

Snook’s volume makes for a valuable contribution to the nascent study of the place of modern Germanic Heathenry in Western society, in no small part because Snook is herself a member of the growing new religious movement. In turn, Snook draws extensively from personal connections and fieldwork. Snook teaches at Grinnell College in Iowa.
