The Interloper presents our cover photo for the January issue, a shot of the Boudhanath stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal, taken by one of our editors. The stupa is an important spiritual monument for people around the world of many different faiths. We like the way it stands for interfaith and cross-cultural dialogue. This month, in this spirit, we hope to inspire dialogue among different identity groups and from different perspectives. We’ll be tackling Obama, R&B artist Miguel, USC’s new security policy, Django Unchained, and more, as well as introducing a new opportunity for our readers to have their own voices heard. We will be releasing content on our website throughout the week, so check back often!
