JAMBALAYA SPIRIT WORKS, PART 1, GUEST LECTURE BY max dashu (Treasures of african woman)september 29, 2019
Max Dashu is a land-walker and history sibyl who teaches women’s global history and heritages through images. She founded the Suppressed Histories Archives to research and document global women's history, the full spectrum of the world's peoples across time. Her legendary slideshows bring to light women of power who have been hidden from view, from ancient icons to female leaders, culture-makers, rebels, and medicine women.
In 1970 Dashu founded the Suppressed Histories Archives to research women in the global cultural record – not only individual women, but female spheres of power, egalitarian cultures, patriarchy, slavery and other patterns of domination. (The Archives marks its 50th anniversary this winter.) From her collection of some 40,000 images, Dashu has created and presented hundreds of slideshows at universities, women’s centers, bookstores, conferences, festivals, libraries, prisons, museums, and schools. She has presented at international conferences in Italy, Switzerland, Britain, Ireland, Australia, Germany, Mexico, Bulgaria, Guatemala, and the US. She also teaches via webcasts, online courses, audio podcasts, her blog Veleda, and her daily Suppressed Histories posts on Facebook.
Max is the author of Witches and Pagans: Women in European Folk Religion, the first volume to be published from her sourcebook Secret History of the Witches. Her next book will be Pythias, Melissae and Pharmakides: Women in Hellenic culture, on women’s ceremonial culture as well as the roots of rape culture and colonial domination. Her articles have appeared in the Encyclopedia of Women in World Religions (2018), Goddesses in World Culture (2010), and other publications. More essays and book excerpts can be found on the Suppressed Histories Archives site. Max has produced two dvds: Woman Shaman: the Ancients (2013) and Women’s Power in Global Perspective (2008). She is also an artist whose paintings are well known in the women’s spirituality community. Her most recent publication is the Deasophy Coloring Book.
