Migration seminar: Teaching migration from a multidisciplinary perspective
Malmö University, Niagara NI:A0311 and online via zoom
Welcome to the Migration seminar
Teaching migration from a multidisciplinary perspective
In this panel debate, program heads from migration master’s in the universities of Malmö (Sweden), Linköping (Sweden), Osnabrück (Germany) and Neuchatel (Switzerland) discuss experiences, benefits and challenges of teaching migration from a multidisciplinary perspective.
What are the main subjects and sources of inspiration in migration studies? What is the core and canonical readings? What is important but often omitted? And, to what extent does a multidisciplinary approach facilitate understanding of migration phenomena? After an initial round of opening addresses and replies, the audience is invited to comment, ask questions and share insights. Students are especially encouraged to share their own experiences being in a multidisciplinary environment.
