Understanding Migration: Local and Global Perspectives

A faculty summer institute and the development of four new courses, open to all undergraduates, on the theme of migration.

“Understanding Im/Migration: Local and Global Perspectives”, is an interdisciplinary humanities-oriented pedagogy of migration that will enable undergraduate students to identify, understand, and evaluate the cultural, social, political, and environmental ramifications of migration. The program will be initiated with a NEH-supported Summer Institute in May 2017 to help faculty develop syllabi for innovative interdisciplinary and humanities-oriented one-credit freshman seminars on facets of migration to be offered beginning Fall 2017. New one-credit courses will be developed into three-credit courses by Fall 2018, which will enhance the course offerings that count toward the required Multidisciplinary Component, a four-course cluster that fulfills the undergraduate Arts & Science general education requirement. With NEH support, two additional activities will enhance the pedagogy of migration project: a symposium on “Immigrant Ohio” and a film festival.
