ANTH 4217 - Travelers, Migrants and Refugees (3 Credit Hours)

The purpose of this course is to explore the movement of people and the impact of that movement on home and globalization. The course will discuss the meaning of home and the reasons why people travel. Each motivation affects people’s perceptions of their destination and their attachments to home. These issues are global issues as well as localized (e.g., rural to urban). Students will discuss issues such as the impact of war, HIV/AIDS, political and religious policies, tourism, religious missions, fieldwork, etc. on people’s movement. The course will consider how globalization and movement impacts identity and inter- and intra-group dynamics.
