Mythic Imagination Along the Silk Road: Female Deities of Power and Transcendence
Friday, July 20, 2018 – 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Like werewolves, female were-animals are shape-changers whose appearance alternates between that of a human woman—often identified as a witch—and that of one or another bird or mammal, including a hyena, a jackal, a wolf, a fox, and most intriguingly, a bat. Myths of these fearsome, predatory creatures are embedded in the mythological and demonological canons of several cultures and religions, and attested across some three thousand years of history. In this richly illustrated talk, Dr. White will discuss the salient features of their mythology, including their female gender; their identifications with nocturnal animals; their predatory habits; and their transformation into divinely appointed agents of human salvation.
