Gendered Movements: Migration, Diaspora, and Organizing in a Transnational Perspective(FGSS Gateway
FGSS 244
Spring 2012
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.
Crosslisting: ANTH 243

This course examines the following conundrum: Why are women's contributions to contemporary transnational and global processes not recognized despite the fact women comprise a significant and sizeable proportion of transnational migrants, actively knit together and produce diasporas and global organizations, and their labouring undergirds contemporary neoliberal economic processes? In analyzing these issues, we will explore the works of feminists seeking to account for the gendered contributions of women to these processes.

Essential Capabilities: Effective Citizenship, Intercultural Literacy
Students will read, write, discuss and present on a number of instances of gendered migration and diasporic formations in our contemporary world.
