College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Conference

The Lincoln Humanities Journal is requesting submissions for its 5th special issue, to be published in December 2017, on the topic of Strangers, Foreigners and Aliens. Contributors are invited to examine (a) the issue of otherness as a philosophical and existential condition; (b) the reality and representations of immigrants and foreigners in the political discourse, the arts, the humanities, the media and the social sciences; (c) the ethical, cultural, political, and social ambivalence toward immigrants; and (d) the legal processes (local, national, international) by which people are made to feel outsiders / insiders.

We welcome approaches across a broad range of disciplines such as anthropology, political science, religion, popular culture, literature, philosophy, visual arts, and the media.
