Welcome to the web site of the Association for the Study of Women and Mythology (ASWM).
For the past decade, ASWM has been networking and developing events related to scholarship and education. The goal of ASWM is to support the work of those whose scholarly/creative endeavors explore or elucidate aspects of the sacred feminine, women and mythology.
Through conferences, publications and networking, ASWM opens dialogue among disciplines, individuals and spiritual traditions. Scholars and creative artists in all media whose work deals with images of the feminine divinity, as well as those interested in the work of such scholars and artists, are welcome to participate in ASWM’s activities.
We hope you’ll find useful resources and connections on this web site. If you choose to join, our members will have access to a second, member-only web site with additional articles and resources to aid their artistic and scholarly work. Some exclusive resources on that site include links to conference papers and articles on publishing (book proposals, fair use, re-framing rejection letters) and research (respectful cross-cultural research).
