Much of mythology is grounded in place. Suggested topics for this symposium might include, but are not limited to, the following:
How do and should the scholarship in 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?
