MP Feminist International Journal is seeking submissions for its Fall 2006
issue on the theme "Religion, Politics and the Great Pumpkin". In the comic
strip "Peanuts", the character Linus once said "There are three things I

Pumpkin." In this issue, we'd like to talk about the great taboo subjects.
Religion, spirituality, politics, and other taboo subjects, such as women

these submissions is that they challenge taboos and explore the subject

CALL FOR PAPERS

Nietzsche's legacy for politics and political thought is profoundly
ambivalent and controversial. A self-declared 'antipolitical' German, he
condemned politics and all things political, yet he also called for a
'grosse Politik'. While a fierce critic of modern democracy, pleased to be
called an 'aristocratic radical', he also acknowledged democracy as the
signature of modernity and valued it as a quarantine against tyranny.

Fear and Loathing: The Springboards of Modern Culture

April 24-26, 2007

Fear and demonization have been some of the most powerful forces enlisted to
create borders between cultures. The call to build a wall between the US &
Mexico, the terms Islamofascism, and surrender monkies, the glorification of
violence in popular media-all are current expressions of fear and
loathing. In America's past we have seen fear and loathing expressed in
regard to Fascism, the Red Scare, the KKK, Japanese internment camps, the
Reservation system, deportations of foreigners, eradications of languages
other than English.
