This course focuses on applying both classical and current anthropological methods to migration studies, with a special
emphasis on the problems of household, gender power, ethnicity, age, circulation of commodities from a migration
perspective. Along with an introduction of the major works and case studies in current migration studies, the course is
concerned with their critical reflections. Special attention is given to the agenda of transnational spaces, social networks
and transnational family. The course aims at 1. providing insight into the way the migration theory has developed throughout
the history of social anthropology, 2. using migration as an analytical tool, 3. developing student's awareness of a gender
perspective in migration and transnationalism, 4. developing student's ability to include the issues concerning the mobility of people, things,and
ideas in their own fieldwork.
