Furthermore, the general theme of the issue is one of the impermanence and mobility of binaries, and their attraction and stickiness, as much in literary and cultural texts as in medical and psychiatric ones. Bodies and Minds: The Past and the Present is a conference for those who like to think about the social, cultural, and psychological and other implications of binaries of good and evil and who are interested in the processes and practices of demonisation and its inverse. The conference explores the notion of the 'demonisation of the angel of the house' in the context of the history of fictions and more recent representations of angels and demons, but also of more recent social and cultural changes, especially in the context of feminism and post-modernism. It also acknowledges the notion of the 'demonisation of the angel of the house' and the various forms of demonisation of women, from the early days of print media to the ongoing demonisation of contemporary liberalism, and from the portrayal of the spirit world in the entertainment industry to what has been called the 'New...

In the next decade the demonisation of Osama bin Laden will probably reach its apogee, and at least as important as his name was his body--bin Laden became the model of the unstable, murderous terrorist as well as the embodiment of the 'other' in the West's self-definition (Scott Macauley). Yet bin Laden's name and his body are both widely known, particularly in relation to the gruesome fate of the World Trade Center in New York, and the demonisation of him has permeated Western popular culture (Kevin McDermott). In this issue we offer you a few of our favourite examples. Perhaps this is also the time to mention that Pop Evil has a website and official fanclub at www.pop-evil.com, including a vibrant Forum. 827ec27edc
