UFLR SECOND CALL: The Mosaics of Traveling Narratives and Narrators
UTAH FOREIGN LANGUAGE REVIEW
Special Twentieth Anniversary Edition
TOPIC: The Mosaics of Traveling Narratives and Narrators
DEADLINE EXTENDED: 21 September, 2011
The Utah Foreign Language Review celebrates its Twentieth Anniversary with a special edition of scholarly essays, travel literature and biographical studies of published authors, and a limited number of creative pieces (such as poems, short stories and autobiographies). Our focus this year is on well-traveled stories and authors as artful mosaics, transformed and transfigured by their encounters with and adoption by foreign cultural contexts. We aim to examine the value storytelling plays in preserving and extending culture, and the various means by which stories migrate, with or without their bearers, taking up new identities as they are told and retold.
UFLR is an annual graduate student initiative first published in 1991 to encourage creative approaches to literary texts of any language, or cultural productions such as film and theatre.
Submissions written in English, Spanish, French, German from graduate students and scholars of all ranks are welcome. Submissions in languages other than English should include complete English language translations. Essays should be 4,000-7,000 words in length, and be formatted to MLA standards. Submission is via email only, and should include in the message body an English language abstract of 100-200 words, your academic affiliation and rank, current postal address, and the full essay via attached document in DOCX or PDF format. Submissions should be sent from your current email address to email@example.com.
