Human Mobility – migration – defines history. Humans have always moved.  This class builds a space for dialogue as we use the anthropological study of migration to talk across disciplinary boundaries.  Two goals drive our seminar: 1) to follow the development of migration theory and methods; and 2) understand the costs and benefits of mobility.  In addition to classroom discussions of migration theory, students will be asked to share their work.
