CFP: [Collections] Journal: Religious Narratives in Word and Image

Sunday, February 3, 2008 - 7:57pm
James M. Kee

INTERFACES invites essays for an issue devoted to 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.

It’s a Mad World: The Work of Terry Gilliam

We seek essays of 4,000 to 8,000 words for an anthology that explores the work of writer-
actor-director-comedian Terry Gilliam. For decades Gilliam has been a leading film auteur, both
a comic and a social critic, and a historical, critical survey of his work is needed. While he has
never wholly departed from his Monty Python roots, he has forged his own distinct vision.
Gilliam cinematically creates worlds that are once familiar if unwelcome. He triumphs the
mundane and the absurd. His anachronistic and off-kilter vision consistently throws off our
ability to find a stable or common foundation on which to ground our approach to his films.
