My paper, Cloths of Fate:Interweavings of Finnic Goddess Embroidery with Mythology and Ancestry was presented in April 2016 at the annual regional meeting of the Pacific Northwest American Academy of Religions/Society of Biblical Literature/American Schools of Oriental Research. It is the third paper in my three-part research project revolving around the mythological links between celestial mare goddesses and swan maidens. Happily, my research is now moving forward into a book on this subject.

Thanks for your interest!  I’d love to hear your thoughts.
