The Mosaics of Traveling Narratives and Narrators
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 various means by which stories migrate, with or without their bearers, and how they take up new identities as they are told and retold.
