Update for ASWM Conference

The following information is a slightly edited version of information from Sid Reger, who encouraged recipients to share it widely:

January 31 is the deadline for Early Bird registration for Borderlands: Scholarship as Pilgrimage and Mystery, the March 28-29 National Conference of the Association for the Study of Women And Mythology (ASWM).  It will feature keynotes by Jean Shinoda Bolen-- “Borderlands;” Sylvia Marcos--“Duality and Divinity: Gender and Eros in Mesoamerican Spirituality” and Laura Fragua-Cota, Jemez Pueblo artist, on her art and inspirations.

Some of the panel topics include: Collective Goddesses of Place in Ancient Europe, The Persistence of Corn Mothers, Gender Borderlands as Sacred, Transformation of Divinities, The Goddess in the Jewish Tradition, Exploring Horses as Living Myths, Mothers Who Won't Back Down, Myth & Magic: Spiritual Power and Sexual Agency in European Folk Tales, Crossing Over: Intra and Inter-species Transformation and Empowerment, Reading the Goddess: Literary Interpretations of the Great Mother, and Shamanism, Indigenous Grandmothers and Art: Remembering our Womb Connection to Ashpamama.

For the past decade, ASWM has been creating events intertwining scholarship, education, ritual, and the arts exploring aspects of the sacred feminine, women, and mythology. It has become known as a great place to hear what’s new in scholarship and to meet other like-minded people. This year’s national conference will take place March 28-29 at the El Tropicano hotel on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX. Please see ASWM Conference program updates and registration information for the latest details.
The ASWM Conference will be preceded on Thursday, March 27, by Matriarchal Studies Day--a symposium of international speakers. Click the preceding link for more information on the program and registration details for this separate event.
