People around the world are facing displacement from such forces as war, development, and climate change. This course will examine the consequences of displacement for people and their communities. It will draw on the book, Root Shock: How Tearing Up City Neighborhoods Hurts America and What We Can Do About It (now in its 20th year in print). The course will use films, narratives and published accounts of upheaval to explore what displacement does and how it can be countered.
