migration or travel, such as V.S. Naipaul’s _The Enigma of Arrival_ or
Tayeb Salih’s _Season of Migration to the North_; however, any proposal
on authors from the Caribbean, Africa, South Asia, etc. will be
considered.

James M. Kee

INTERFACES invites inquiries and proposed essays for an issue on the roles
played by narratives in religious traditions. Proposals may address
themselves to narratives presented either verbally or visually. Those
which address narratives presented in both media are especially welcome.
The issue will concern itself with the distinctive functions of narratives
and the need within traditions for certain basic narratives to be re-told.
Essays may focus upon narratives from any major religious tradition.
