Gender, Ethnicity, and Migration

Why do people migrate? Do immigrants assimilate into host countries or maintain ties with their home countries? What factors shape the work experiences of (im)migrants? A gendered perspective, critical to the study of these topics, is still poorly integrated into international migration theory. This course will challenge us to keep gender at the center when answering the classic questions of migration studies. Students will be asked to consider how the feminization of migration and a perspective that includes the intersection of gender, ethnicity, class, and nation challenge the theoretical tools used to make sense of migration and its effects.
