Matriarchal Studies Day, May 10, 2012

We have been working with a group of matriarchal studies scholars in the US, to arrange their Matriarchal Studies Day to occur the day before our national conference.  Like ASWM’s conference, their event will take place at the Holiday Inn at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.  We have also arranged to co-sponsor their evening keynote presentation by Dr. Heide Goettner-Abendroth, the founder of Modern Matriarchal Studies as a branch of feminist anthropology.

When you see their program, and ours, we hope that you will want to join us for both of these exciting events!
