Worldwide Bibliography on Matriarchal Studies
Created by Barbara Mann and Heide Goettner-Abendroth
This new website has been planned for quite a long time at the Academy HAGIA, and it is now complete and available online. It includes a unique bibliography of Modern Matriarchal Studies in English and German.
Each title mentioned has been provided with a short comment, so that the origin and development of traditional and modern Matriarchal Studies can be followed up.
The first part of the bibliography focuses on anthropology. Here publications can be found in which matriarchal societies and societies with matriarchal elements, worldwide, have been researched and presented: in Africa, the Americas, East Asia, and Australia. The second part of the bibliography is dedicated to the history of cultures. This part contains archaeological publications and those concerned with the history of cultures which have contributed to our knowledge about matriarchal societies in history: in this case for the continents of West Asia and Europe.
The Oxford University Press (USA) already published this comprehensive bibliography in 2015 and updated it in 2019. In 2019, it was translated into German and is now available in both languages.
Licensed by Oxford University Press, it has now been published once again and free of charge as a gift to scholars and people interested in modern Matriarchal Studies.
It is an excellent academic tool for further research on matriarchal societies.
