Race, Nation and Ethnicity - ANTH705

This unit targets students interested in the contemporary nature of states, nations, and other “imagined communities” with a focus on issues of race, ethnicity, mobility, territoriality and citizenship. This unit will explore the effects of the increased mobility of populations, economic globalization and expanding technological interconnection on national and trans-national communities. It will specify the relationship between nation, empire and diaspora with regard to the politics of multiculturalism, territoriality and belonging, and will pay particular attention to the particular place of vulnerable mobile groups: refugees, asylum seekers, deportees, and migrant workers in the contemporary national order of things.
