Course aim

To further develop students' sociological understandings of international migration and the ensuing social and cultural transformations in sending and receiving societies and communities.

Course content

The course examines international migrations and the consequential social transformations paying particular attention to the impact of globalising forces on human mobility, including voluntary and involuntary migration. Students apply interpretive and critical approaches to cultural adaptation with particular reference to transitional, hybrid and border identities, and societal outcomes of immigration (assimilation, integration, marginalisation and hybridity). The course also examines policy outcomes in settler countries (multiculturalism, security and citizenship) in addition to issues of social inclusion/exclusion, social cohesion and human rights.
