About the course
Together with IM258L, IMER: Europe and International Migration, the course constitutes the 31-60 level within the main subject of International Migration and Ethnic Relations.
The aim of the course is to familiarize students with concepts introduced earlier in IMER 1-30, as well as to acquire an increased understanding of relevant structural and cultural contexts within the field of International Migration and Ethnic Relations. Students will also develop the ability to apply the earlier acquired knowledge on societal phenomenon in the contemporary world.
The course will first deal with ethnic diversity, perspectives such as religion and cultural identity, minorities, post-colonialism, gender and every day practices etc. The questions in focus will be discussed from both a minority and a majority perspective. The major part of the course will be devoted to project work in which the students, supported by supervisors, will apply theoretical perspectives on phenomena in our contemporary world.
