InterCulture, the University of Ottawa's Department of Classics and Religious Studies and Aboriginal Studies Programme, is holding a two-day workshop on matrilineal societies - their worldviews, and on how they are redefining themselves in order to survive as distinct peoples in an era of globalization and development.

This workshop is part of a larger initiative. InterCulture will be hosting members of the Mosuo Ethnic Minority, China's only matrilineal society, later this fall, and the Lugu Lake Mosuo Cultural Development Association will be sponsoring an international symposium in 2013 or 2014.
