>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.
>
>For our thirteenth annual Multicultural Conference we request papers that
>deal with the use of fear and loathing- as played out in culture, in the
>arts, in politics, in     business, in the legal system-in fashioning both
>past and present cultural and ethnic divisions.
>
>We invite faculty, administrators, and staff to participate in delivering
>presentations or reading creative works within the conference

>
>presentation.  Individuals interested in reading creative works should

>exceed 10 double-spaced pages of typescript so that papers can be presented
