    Abstract:
    This graduate reading seminar examines some of the historical literature on migration in a global perspective, focusing on the nineteenth century through the present. It focuses on theoretical approaches to the study of migration as well as on case studies, moving between longue-durée and comparative issues on the one hand and local effects of global movements on the other hand. The readings emphasize major themes and questions in migration theory, including free and forced migrations; networks and diaspora; labor migration; refugees; ethnicity, race, gender, and class; empire; and questions of border surveillance. Readings will comprise a book and selection of articles weekly. The books represent recent empirical works in migration studies, and each is paired with canonical article contributions grounded in migration theory. Students prepare weekly reading responses, occasional presentations, and a seminar paper related to their field of interest. Designed primarily for students preparing for higher degrees in history (Advanced Topics in World History); open to other graduate students with instructor’s consent.
