Exhibitions: The Fertile Goddess: Podcast

In conjunction with the exhibition The Fertile Goddess, scholars Ellen Belcher and Diana Craig Patch discuss early female figurines of the Neolithic Period from ancient Mesopotamia and of the Predynastic and Early Dynastic Periods from ancient Egypt. Moderated by exhibition curator Madeleine Cody, the panel investigates issues of interpretation, function, and provenance that have influenced how herstory is uncovered. The panel was held at the Brooklyn Museum on March 14, 2009.
