Recent events have led to reappraisals of religion and spirituality.
This creates an opportunity to collect in one volume the different and
differing perspectives and interpretations of what it means to be
religious or spiritual today. Essays intended for an international
audience are therefore solicited for inclusion in a collection
tentatively entitled "Uniqueness and Versatility: Cross-Cultural
Expressions of Spirituality". The book is to bring together innovative
but readable explorations of religious, mythological, cosmological and
theological texts.

Call for Papers: THE VELVET LIGHT TRAP
A CRITICAL JOURNAL OF FILM AND TELEVISION STUDIES
Defining the Americas: Media Within/Across Borders

The history of the American continents has long been one of establishing and
crossing borders. From pre-colonial times to the present, people and
cultures define and redefine themselves and their borders, especially in
response to perceived conquest opportunities or threats. As cultural
discourse, media interrogates the construction of identity within and beyond
national or other boundaries.

INTERFACES, a bilingual French/English journal, invites essays for a
series of issues focusing upon the representational role of narrative in
religious traditions, whether in word or image. The issues will be
concerned especially with narrative's irreducible functions and with the
need within traditions for certain basic narratives to be re-told. Essays
may focus upon narratives from any major religious tradition; those that
foster dialogue between traditions-for example, by taking up tales common
to more than one-are especially welcome. The journal's plural title
announces its particular commitment to scholarship that explores
interdisciplinary interfaces.
