ANT 315 The Migration Experience (A,D,W)

Economic change, war and political upheaval have created an increasing number of authorized and unauthorized migrants in the contemporary world. Using the holistic approach and cultural insight of anthropology, this course takes a migrant's perspective from departure from one's native land through the journey and challenges of adaptation in a new place. We will focus on issues related to gender, identity and personal histories. 3 Cr.
