Migration and Economic Structures 1700-2010

The focus of this course is to analyse migration in different historical periods and geographical areas from different theoretical perspectives.

Of special interest will be to analyse migration in relation to production, reproduction and the gendered division of labour. Local, regional as well as international migration in different time periods and geographical areas are dealt with. The course highlights and discusses the implication of colonialism, and post-colonial formations as well as the current globalisation process on migration processes.

The course treats several different theoretical perspectives and will discuss implications of gender, class, ethnicity/race, sexuality and nationality in relation to migration and work.
