Learning Objectives

In line with the learning objective of the Laurea Magistrale, we aim to provide a sound preparation in specific thematic fields of the anthropological discipline. This course offers an introductory overview of the Anthropology of Migration by illustrating its theoretical foundations and historical development, and exploring the relationship between migration, globalization and the formation of new forms of family structures and communities that can be met in migratory contexts.

Program

Following a brief introduction about the fundaments of Cultural Anthropology, the basic topics of the Anthropology of Migration will be the object of the first part of the course and particular attention will be places on its origins in the 1920s’ and to its actual growing relevance within the anthropological discipline. Classic anthropological issues such as ethnicity and gender identity, kinship and family networks, power and exchange relations as well as more recent issue (diasporic identities, transnational networks, forms of citizenship) will be tackled through the lens of the migrations field.

The existing categorial, legal and administrative distinction between economic/voluntary migrations and political/forced ones will be tackled at a second stage. The proliferation of labels to classify migrants, and related forms of their inclusion/exclusion, control, containment and detention, or deportation will be object of presentations. In particular, main differences the management and the study of migration between the global North and the Global South will be highlighted. Examples of early migrations across the Indian Ocean will be part of the material proposed to the students.

Discussion will also be solicited through the vision of a number of video documentaries on migration issues which will be used as a study tool.
