Migration & Culture: Deepening Comparative Understanding of Global Migration

The project proposes intensive study of the cultural impact of global migration in four key world regions (Asia-Pacific, Africa, Euro-Mediterranean, Latin America) to enhance my competency for teaching my course, Migration & Culture. Currently the course focuses on the impact of migration on American society and culture, and the homelands of US immigrants. Growth in volume and significance of international migration worldwide poses challenges to broad questions of human existence and meaning, such as cultural conceptions of national identity and heritage, sparking anew the relevance of humanities to the current conditions of national life throughout contemporary societies. Comparative understanding of the global scope of migration will enable course redesign to bring students greater critical perspective and enrich their humanistic understanding of migration within a global context. Results include a redesigned syllabus and comparative learning assignments, publicly accessible online.
