Interdisciplinary Approaches to Borderlands and Human Mobility
Travel Course during Spring Break 2022/ 8 days of immersion from March 6-13, 2022
Undergraduate course #: SCWK660901
Graduate course #: SCWK889903
This course will analyse borderlands dynamics, their impact on international human mobility, and different disciplinary approaches to create effective interventions and/or regional analysis. Recently, global border regions have taken front and centre in discussions of migration and forced migration. Emerging nationalistic sentiments have fostered policies and dynamics to increase surveillance, control, and conflict along border regions. The “Remain in Mexico'' and “Title 42” policies are some examples of how the United States government externalize its borders and enforce policies that impact people’s lives at different levels. Furthermore, border regions remain lively, as local and foreign populations interact and try to navigate the unfolding dynamics of human mobility. This course offers the opportunity to understand and analyse different contexts in border regions, as well as the opportunity to interact with students from different disciplinary backgrounds. It also allows students to identify vulnerable populations in these settings, and to reflect on the impact their particular discipline has in understanding and participating in borderland dynamics.
