The ISJencourages submissions that closely interrogate the ideological, discursive, and epistemological frameworks employed in processes of “Otherness” the complex social, political, economic, gender, sexual, and religious forces that are intimately linked in the historical production of the modern world from the dominance of the colonial/imperial north to the postcolonial south.
