Advanced Selected Topics in Anthropology: Migrants, Immigrants, and Refugees

This course is an interdisciplinary examination of the mass movement of populations throughout the world. We will explore the various reasons behind people’s geographic displacement and their experiences with resettlement in new communities. Utilizing a multi-disciplinary set of materials- e.g. anthropology, political science and international relations, literature, and history, to name just a few- this course is intended to introduce students to various issues related to the global and local movements of people, particularly over the last two centuries. Topics we will examine include but are not limited to: the migration of human societies throughout time; labor migration under capitalism in the 20th and 21st centuries; African Americans from the southern US to the North during WWII; the process of securing political asylum in the U.S.; and Latino migrant and immigrant communities in the US. Students will engage in daily readings, writing, discussions and group exercises.
