Diasporas, Transnationalism and Globalization
COL 294
Spring 2007
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: AMST 294, SOC 294, ENGL 294

Until the late 1960s, there were three classical diasporas: Jewish, Armenian and Greek. The first was considered the paradigmatic case. In the past three decades, many dispersed peoples, once known as minorities, ethnicities, migrants or exiles have been renamed 'diasporas' by some of their own artists, or intellectual and political leaders, or by scholars. This phenomenon must be understood in the context of ever-increasing transnationalism and globalization. This course will introduce students to the past and present of the concepts 'diaspora', 'transnationalism' and, to a lesser extent, 'globalization.'
