ASWM Issues Call for Papers

The Association for the Study of Women & Mythology (ASWM) has issued a Call for Papers to be presented at its upcoming biennial symposium, "Lady of Ten Thousand Lakes: Finding Wisdom in Places" to be held in St. Paul, Minnesota on April 20, 2013. Proposals may include papers, panels, and workshops. ASWM says it will give preference to the following topics, but is not limiting submissions to these topics: 
--How do and should the scholarship in Goddess Studies and Women’s Mythology and Spirituality engage with the sense and reality of place? 
--What women’s myths are especially grounded in a place or places?
--What happens when such disciplines as Natural History, Ecology, and other sciences of place interact with Women and Mythology?
--What does place mean methodologically?
--How does our scholarship change when place becomes an element or partner in our research? How does this intersect with Embodied Research or Embodied Methodologies?
--What are the criteria for solid scholarship using these new models?
--Do issues of place add an activist quality to our scholarship?
--Does activism have a place in scholarship?
--What does it mean to find wisdom in places?
 Papers should be 20 minutes; panels with up to four papers on a related topic may be proposed together. Workshop proposals should be organized to provide audience interaction and must clearly address the theme. (Workshops are limited to 90 minutes.)

Presenters from all disciplines are welcome, as well as creative artists and practitioners whose work includes scholarly presentation of mythic themes. Deadline for submissions is January 15. If interested, please read complete information on the ASWM website
