GLOBAL MIGRATION: PEOPLE, POWER AND MOBILITY

HIS2GMN

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In Global Migrations, students study the mass migrations from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific which shaped the modern world. We examine how migrations since 1800 occurred in response to labour force needs, resource booms, economic depression, and the effects of war and conflict. We explore forced relocation (slave trade, indentured labour, convict transportation); aspirational mobility (gold-seekers, assisted immigrants); and post war resettlement (displaced persons, refugees, asylum seekers). We consider government attempts to control populations, through immigration law, border control, deportation and internment, as well as challenges to such practices by human rights and justice movements. You will address the effects of racial ideology, gender and class and debate concepts of assimilation and multiculturalism. The subject enables you to develop independent research skills by investigating your own family migration stories, and addresses Latrobe's Global Citizenship essential.
