Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Ryan Schram


This unit of study examines human migration and settlement from an anthropological perspective. It is framed by three general and connecting themes: (a) anthropology's turn from bounded cultures to the study of movement and contested identities; (b) the role of migration in transnational relations with a focus on middle and late modernity; and (c) the relation between the growth of migration populations and race relations, especially as this has unfolded in Australia.
