Migration & Citizenship

Spring 2019

Taught By: Riva Kastoryano

Section: A

CRN: 8057

Credits: 3

International migration patterns have shaped and reshaped individual and collective identities throughout history and across the world. In the present time of globalization, these dynamics have posed particular political and social challenges in both the United States and Europe. National history in the United States, immigration in the European context is the result of the reconstruction of the economy after WWII and decolonization of the 1960s. Today in both sides of the Atlantic the question is raised in terms of border control, integration and citizenship, of national unity, rights and identity. The seminar will emphasize changes and continuity, convergences and divergences among policies, rhetoric and approaches with regard to immigration, incorporation and citizenship in Western democracies. New developments with regard to migration policies and their effect on identity politics, institutional arrangements, multiculturalism, secularism and religion, as well as on the modes of organization, mobilizations and claims of immigrants or minorities will be analyzed. These developments include also globalization and its challenges with regard to transnationalism and dual citizenship as new perspectives in the studies of migration and citizenship. Based on empirical researches, theoretical reflections and normative considerations, the seminar will question the terms of citizenship, membership and allegiance, and the changing relationship between citizenship, rights, and belonging. This course will be taught by Riva Kastoryano.
