Over the course of eight sessions, this course will identify key reasons for migration and look at concepts such as push/pull and forced versus voluntary migration factors. Case studies will be used.

Students will examine migration to the Americas in the 19th century and internal migration from South to North and from rural to industrial, 1910-1920. Migrations caused by the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and WWI will be looked at, as well as the impact of WWII on migration, including the Potsdam Agreement in 1945. Migration caused by the partition of India in 1947 will also be covered. Migration in the 21st century ie contemporary migration across the Middle East and North Africa as well as migration into and through Europe will be covered.
