ANTH 4300 - Migrants and Refugees

3 hours

Anthropological understanding of "uprooted" and displaced social groups who leave their country and culture. Worldwide political, economic and social issues are analyzed, as are the processes of accommodation, adaptation and re-creation of their cultural systems in different socioeconomic and political contexts. Beginning with general characteristics of the anthropological discussion on "displacement", the course then ventures into different models for the analysis and understanding of migration and refugee movements.

Prerequisite(s): None.
