MP feminist peer-reviewed biannual e-journal is seeking papers on the
subject of "CHOICE". The word choice has been used as a galvanizing point
concerning abortion, but the concept of the right to choose extends well
beyond the womb. Feminists argue over the kinds of choices we make...the
choice to be a stay at home mother or have a consuming career, the choice to
 marry or not to marry, the choice to be celibate or to be sexually
promiscuous, the choice to agree or disagree with feminist "party lines",
etc. We are seeking academic papers, personal narratives, creative writing,
or journalistic writings that wrestle with the idea of gender and choice in

Abstracts are now being accepted for a session at the 2006 International
Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, Michigan:
 
 Death in Medieval Romance
 
 Death--whether of the hero, a lover, parent, child, traitor, monster,
or simply foot-soldier (and the list could go on)--is a recurrent and
