Untamed Women Versus Imperial Roman Patriarchy at 35 Whalley Street Northcote
November 9 Time: 8PM
Susan shares new poems—drawing on the mythic archives about wolves and sheep—from her book Lupa and Lamb.
Max shows her visual talk on how Goddess cultures of many countries were hybridized during the Roman empire.
Susan Hawthorne (Australia) and Max Dashu (USA) have each been researching pre-patriarchal mythologies of women for more than four decades. Susan Hawthorne’s Lupa and Lamb, her ninth collection of poetry, was written on an Australia Council residency in Rome. An award-winning poet, her work has been broadcast on national radio and published and performed internationally. Her books draw on her mythic, poetic, and linguistic researches.
Max Dashu is a historian who has created a vast collection of female iconography and over 100 visual presentations, video dvds (most recently, Woman Shaman: the Ancients) and a forthcoming book series, Secret History of the Witches.
