Migration and Movement in/between Muslim Worlds

ANTH 311
Fall 2020
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: African Studies, African Studies Minor

The spectacular migrant crisis across the Mediterranean Sea since 2014 has frozen a particular racialized understanding of migration and flight out of the Middle East and North Africa. This course looks to trouble this singular narrative of movement out of the Middle East and Africa by looking at the multiethnic and transnational flows of workers, capital, fighters, and aid workers in and out of the region since the late 1990s. We read ethnographies of development, war, exile, investment, and activism in order to better understand exchange, change, and fluid continuities in overlapping theaters between Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
