WGSS 3 Global Race x Global Migration

The racialized migrant is the dominant figure in contemporary global capitalism. This figure represents the contradiction at the heart of planetary dynamics, and is increasingly the node on which politics, economy, and culture turns. What would it mean to read the history of the globe from the figure of the racialized migrant? This course breaks away from the disciplinary categories and cartographies of area studies while pushing beyond Western racial epistemologies that have bracketed the study of migration and race. Instead, we attend to migration’s “corridors” “zones,” “circuits” and “ecologies” to understand the ways that race and contemporary mobility are made—across various terrestrial, aqueous, and aerial spaces—always in relation to the layered histories of colonial, imperial, and global formations.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
