This course is organized during the first three weeks of June! A final decision whether the course is organized in a given year is made until the end of April (when we know how many students from the USA are to participate).

The schedule will be updated till the mid of the May.

This is an intensive interdisciplinary summer course for social science students interested in current immigration issues in the United States and Europe. The first two weeks of the program will consist of intensive in-class discussions, lectures, viewing of documentaries, etc. This is a highly interactive course and students will need to do readings outside of class on daily basis in order to be able to participate in in-class discussions. Readings will be provided to students online. Topics will include journeys of migrants from their home countries to their destinations; remittances and their impact on sending communities; transnational nature of modern migration; issues of legality and deportations; acculturation; discrimination, etc.

The American students will be conducting a research project as part of this course. Charles University students can choose to do this component. Most time spend on the research part will take place in the third week of the course and subsequent writing of the research paper will take place later in the summer. All students will be required to write several short reflective papers during the first two weeks of the course. In addition, their grade will be based on their contribution to class discussions. There will be no oral exam in the end of the course.
All classes will be conducted in English.

Grading

 

Attendance & Participation               20%

Short papers                                      45%

Reflection                                          10%

Final Exam                                         25%

 

Attendance: You need to attend all classes and field trips during our summer abroad program. Only serious issues (i.e., health-related issues; need to go to the Embassy) will be considered as an excuse for absences. The lectures presented by Czech Professors will likely not be available to you electronically, so if you miss a class, you will miss important content.

 

Participation: You are expected to participate actively during the classes. Even during lectures, you are expected to listen actively and ask questions during or afterwards (depending on the instructor’s preference). During discussion times, you are expected to actively share your views, listen to those of others, respond to others, etc.

 

Short papers: You will need to write 3 short papers while in Prague, one due each week. Each week, you will be able to choose from at least 2 topics to write about. Each paper needs to be at least 700 words long. In the papers, you should discuss the topic of your choice from your subjective (“I”) perspective. Rather than summarizing what you learned, you should engage with the topic/material in some way: perhaps it is familiar because it is similar to your own experience; perhaps it is shocking; perhaps you want to compare it to a situation in another country, etc. The paper will be graded based on the quality of writing (spelling and grammar matter), the depth of your engagement, the level of your understanding of the material.

 

Reflection: You need to write a reflection about your stay Prague. What did the experience mean to you? What did you gain by having this experience, both academically and personally? What would you like to tell a student who is considering this experience at a later time? What would you have changed about the program? This is due 7/3/2019 at noon at jana_sladkova@uml.edu. 

 

Final Exam: This will be a take-home exam. All topics covered in Prague will be on the exam. It will be mostly open-ended questions. It is due 7/10/2019 at noon at jana_sladkova@uml.edu. It will be based on in-Prague lectures and readings.

 

For UMass Lowell students who are taking the class for 6 credits:

You must attend your practicum the whole week and actively participate in what is asked of you. You will write a 10-page paper on your practicum experience. The exact focus will depend on the placement.

 

The paper is due 7/15/2019 at noon at jana_sladkova@uml.edu.
