Advancing scholarship about women and mythology involves the evolution and refinement of scholarly methods. Suggested topics for this symposium might include, but are not limited to, the following:
What are new paths for the field of women's spirituality? What new models and methods support scholarly inquiry? How shall new methods be evaluated? What are criteria for solid scholarship using these new models? What are the complexities around issues of cultural appropriation? How can scholars understand and address the tensions around rootedness and local culture on the one hand, and issues of lineage and history on the other?
