ASWM Awards to Dawn Work-MaKinne & Margot Adler
Dawn Work-MaKinne received the first Kore Award for Best Dissertation in Goddess Studies, awarded at the Green Goddess Conference of the Association for Study of Women and Mythology this weekend near the Delaware Water Gap in Pennsylvania. The award was given for for Work-MaKinne's study of collective Germanic goddesses including the Romano-German Matronen, the Norns, the Disir, and the Christian saints called the Three Holy Maidens. Work-McKinne presented a paper based on her dissertation at the conference. Margot Adler received ASWM's first Demeter Award for Leadership in Women's Spirituality.

The Kore Award is offered in even-number years for dissertations completed in the previous two calendar years, including defense.
