ANTH 225 - INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION
The course will review recent trends in international migration in the context of the processes of globalization. We will study contemporary movements of people crossing international borders, and will look at the social and cultural effects of these movements. The course will familiarize students with shifts in migration over time and the political and economic processes that shape international migration. By examining several in-depth ethnographic studies, we will also learn about individuals and communities experience various forms of migration. Some of the key questions the course addresses are: Why do peoples relocate across international borders? Why and how do states attempt to control international migration and what are the effects of these policies on migrants' lives? How is the meaning of citizenship changing in an era of globalization? How are the identities of migrants shaped by the experience of migration? What kinds of relationships do migrants maintain with homelands and with communities of migrants in other countries?
