Area of Study
Humans have been on the move forever, seeking out new opportunities and eventually settling virtually every part of our globe. But the rise of modern nation-states led to passports, visas, and laws that constrained free movement of people across borders. Nevertheless, at the turn of the millennium, the world has experienced an apparent upswing in international migration, leading some to label this “The Age of Migration” (Castle & Miller 2009). In this seminar, we want to explore this contemporary global movement of people: Who is moving? Where? When? Why? How? And we want to explore the effects of this movement of people: What impact does migration have on sending and receiving societies? How are ways of being and ways of belonging affected by migration? And what links, in an era of globalization, do dispersed peoples maintain across borders? In sum, we want to explore what scholars of international migration and global diasporas have had to say about human movement and transnational connections in this global era. And we will be developing case studies (based on our own experiences and the experiences of others) of particular groups of people who, for whatever reasons, have been on the move, to various places, in recent decades.
