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
have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics and the Great
Pumpkin." In this issue, we'd like to talk about the great taboo subjects.
Religion, spirituality, politics, and other taboo subjects, such as women
and money, are welcomed. The most important thing we'll be looking for in
these submissions is that they challenge taboos and explore the subject
intelligently and uniquely. We are primarily seeking academic articles using

Nietzsche, Power & Politics

March 23 - 25, 2007

UNIVERSITY OF LEIDEN, THE NETHERLANDS

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.

Call For Papers for Proposed Panel on Economics and Narrative Form: Society
for the Study of Narrative Literature, Georgetown, 03/07
 
Submissions are invited for a proposed panel addressing narrative as an
economic form: in what ways do narrative strategies underwrite economic
relations or financial instruments such as credit, speculation, or interest?
Critics have consistently suggested that the economic content of novels in
particular contributed to the ideological normalization of capitalism, but
have less often engaged the economic consequences of narrative form. How
might narrative form(s) eventuate or contest the consolidation of financial

CALL FOR PAPERS, COLLABORATIONS AND INTERVENTIONS: AESTHETICS AND
RADICAL POLITICS
Fri 2nd Feb 2007, University of Manchester

Sponsored by the SGSA
www.sgsa.org.uk

There has always been a strong connection historically between
aesthetics and radical politics, and this is no less true for the
global justice movement's current preoccupation with cultural
approaches to political action. This conference seeks to bring
radical artists, activists, theorists and academics together to
discuss past and present convergences between the theories and
practices of artists and writers and the theories and practices of
movements for radical social change.

New Deadline for "Cross Cultural Explorations of Trauma" at the North
East MLA, Baltimore March 1-4.

Despite Cathy Caruth's claim in her landmark collection "Trauma:
Explorations in Memory" that "trauma itself may provide the very link
between cultures," trauma has been infrequently explored from
cross-cultural and non-Western perspectives. This panel seeks to examine
the relationship between trauma and culture, to explore and possibly
critique the Eurocentric perspective of trauma studies, and to
investigate the manner in which trauma reinvigorates psychoanalysis with
the work of cultural critique.

Paper topics might consider the following questions:

Call For Papers
Visualization and Narrative: A themed issue of Reconstruction

Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture
<reconstruction.eserver.org> is soliciting papers for a special themed
issue on visualisation and narrative--with special reference to
filmmaking, information design, and computing.

Visualisation consists of the visual representation and analysis of
processes over time, in dynamically changing information spaces.

As filmmaking has moved to digital formats in writing screenplays,
making images and sounds and editing and manipulating those images,
all filmmaking processes are actually or potentially subject to
visualisation.

to be put to the test (experimentation)."
