Description: This seminar explores why migrants leave their home countries, how they experience migration and adaptation to their host countries, and the economic, social, and cultural effects migration has in sending and receiving countries. Discussions will include migrant and refugee rights, discrimination, transnational families and identities, human trafficking and labor rights, notions of citizenship, and diasporic communities. We will consider how an anthropological approach might enrich efforts to improve conditions for migrants and challenge nativist sentiment and policy. Letter grade only.
