In this seven-week online course community members will study, without pressure of graded assignments, alongside University of Arizona graduate students enrolled in the Human Rights Practice Program. Join cultural and medical anthropologist Dr. Mette Brogden as she explores the phenomenology of migration: the experiences of people undertaking the migration journey, as well as the participation of other stakeholders and players who are facilitating, trying to prevent, and/or otherwise participating in these journeys and arrivals. Dr. Brogden will introduce course participants to the field of refugee and migration management/deterrence and will host weekly virtual lectures with guest speakers from areas that are part of migrant journeys from Central America to the U.S., and from West Africa to Europe.
Registered community members will meet with Dr. Brogden in seven live online sessions on the following Mondays from 5 to 6:30 PM: March 22, 29, April 5, 12, 19, 26, and May 3.
Both registered Community members and University of Arizona graduate students will meet together in weekly live online sessions with invited guests. Time and date of those sessions will be announced a soon as they are finalized and confirmed with the invited guests.
