Description - Alienhood by Katarzyna Marciniak

A timely and critical understanding of transnational culture. "Alien" has a double meaning in the United States, suggesting both "foreigner" and "extraterrestrial creature." In Alienhood, Katarzyna Marciniak explores this semantic duality. Interrogating the dominant images of aliens in American popular culture-and in legal, historical, linguistic, and literary discourses-Marciniak examines "alienhood" and the impact it has on the daily experiences of migrants, legal or illegal.
