Mary Zeiss Stange, professor emerita of women's studies and religion, was the keynote speaker at a December conference titled "Tradition in Search of a Rationale: The Future of Hunting in Japan and North America" at the University of Iowa. Her address focused on cross-cultural comparisons of the ways indigenous cultures draw on religious and ritual symbolism surrounding hunting to create art forms that contribute, both figuratively and literally, to these people's survival in the modern world.
