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.
