This bibliography was started in 2012 by Prof. Elizabeth Eames in Anthropology, Bates College, and her student assistant, Maame Nyarko F. Bonsu, to document the changes the town of Lewiston was experiencing with the arrival of Somali immigrant refugees beginning in 2001.
This original "historic" bibliography was updated by Laura Juraska, Associate Librarian for Research Services, and student assistant help from Caroline Barnes and Carly Peruccio. They also began a new bibliography starting with works from 2012 onward.
All citations from both bibliographies were then reviewed and given keywords to assist researchers in pinpointing particular aspects of the ongoing social phenomenon.
