Global Diasporas: Roots and Routes

Description:
This course takes a cross-cultural and global approach to examining diaspora- the phenomenon of being rooted to an ancestral homeland which is other than the nation in which one currently resides. Focusing on the U.S. and other majority-white countries, we analyze diaspora as an identity formation; its relationship to ideas like "transnational" and "nation" and how notions of race, minority status, and indigenous status (e.g. American Indian) affect whether and how a group is considered a diaspora.
