BWS 211 - Diasporas and Diversity

3 hours
Diaspora, the migration and settlement of people from their homeland to other countries, has been taking place from ancient times. Huge population movements in world history have had tremendous effects on diversity within nations. This course will examine the relationship between diaspora and racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity in the United States and other societies, including the Jewish experience; empire, diaspora and diversity; the Europeanization of the Americas; African and African American diaspora; dimensions of the Asian diaspora; victim, labor, and business diasporas; and the role of globalization in cultural diversity.

This course will satisfy the multicultural studies requirement.
