ASWM 2021 Virtual Conference: Celebrating the Work of Marija Gimbutas


Register Here!
A Conference I've attended and presented at several times in the past, one I very much have enjoyed and learned from!  
Wisdom Across the Ages ~ Celebrating the Centennial of Archaeomythologist
Marija Gimbutas
July 16-18

We've added some great blog posts on our website. Joan Marler's remarks on her upcoming Symposium keynote "Remembering a Great Woman of Science", introducing the Symposium panelists and topics on “Voices from/for the Land: Wisdom of Place and Tradition”.  Also, Miriam Robbins Dexter discusses her latest book and how she is honoring Marija Gimbutas in her current projects.


Our Symposium is hosted through a different event website. You can recognize it by the red and gray color scheme and the ASWM Bee logo in the upper left of the Menu. We want you to get the most out of your online experience. Please review these notes about the event website.   

Notes for everyone:
 While the program sessions are only open to those who register, some features of the site are available to everyone. They are:

You may add words or videos to an archive of appreciations. If you met or knew Dr. Gimbutas, or you were influenced by her research, or you just want to express gratitude for her vision and persistence, your remarks will become part of the permanent record of this important centennial event.
