What does the term multicultural mean in an American society that is clearly becoming more and more diverse
in its cultures? How do we become, willingly or not, more than ourselves,
representatives for somebody? In the midst of a society which is riddled with
casuistic, borderline definitions of ethnicity and culture, is this a blessing
or a curse? This issue explores the ways in which we view ourselves and each
other, and what some of us become when we come from the colonial world to
the colonizing world.
