"Cosmopolitanism of the Excoriated"

"To live with the other, with the foreigner, confronts us with the possibility... of being an other. It is not simply a matter - humanistically - of our aptitude for accepting the other, but of being in his or her place, which amounts to thinking of oneself and making oneself other than oneself." Burgin, Victor. In/different Spaces: Place and Memory in Visual Culture. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1996. Internet resource.

"...The reality of non-belonging and foreignness with its endless possibilities for becoming." Beugnet, Martine. Cinema and Sensation: French Film and the Art of Transgression. Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press, 2007. Print.
