Every society in the world is currently experiencing rapid economic, social, political and technological changes in response to expanding market economies and diffusion of information. Due to the extent of contemporary migration, society is being shaped by immigrants and the children of immigrants. Migration is highly selective and the outcomes of migration are diverse. This course will enable the student to confront these issues through lectures, readings, discussions and assignments. As students learn of the causes and effects of migration in prehistory and in the contemporary, they will gain a broad understanding of human mobility as a force for social evolution.
