Immigration is a phenomenon that contemporary societies struggle with. In this context the figure of the foreigner is a good scenario to explore the dynamics and tensions of cultures in contact. The liminal perspective provided by the outsider adds a new interpretation of our own reality, questioning the foundations of the canonical culture and our own identities. "What appear to be cultural units-human beings, words, meanings, ideas, philosophical systems, social organizations-are maintained in their apparent unity only through an active process of exclusion, opposition, and hierarchization.

Complexity Theory and Cultural Artifacts Papers are sought which apply
scholarship from the growing field of Complexity Studies (dealing with
emergence, cultural complexity, protocol, control, information,
technology, network theory) in their analysis of mediated texts. Of
particular interest are papers which address the role of complexity and
cultural artifacts in relation to multiculturalism, nationalism,
transnationalism, postcolonialism, or identity politics, as manifest
withinin (or in relation to) the public sphere.
