Practices associated with these beliefs, such as rituals and traditional festivals, have been safeguarded and promoted so that they have become increasingly popular in contemporary society. In order to evaluate the significance of beliefs in Mother Goddesses, discuss the theoretical issues that they raise, and approaches to both research and cultural preservation, Viet Nam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies is collaborating with the Nam Dinh Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism to organize an international conference on “The Study of Mother Goddess Beliefs in Contemporary Society.”
