HIST 7310 Graduate Colloquium: Global Migration and Diaspora (Fall: 3 )
The world has experienced an upsurge in migration in recent decades, which many commentators see as part of a new process of globalization. But, just as the origins of globalization go back several centuries, the nature of contemporary migration cannot be understood outside its deeper historical context. Mass migration has been central to human history from the very beginning. This graduate readings course, based on historiographical analysis rather than primary research, will examine the history of migration from its origins to the present, with coverage of all main areas and a particular emphasis on the concept of diaspora.
