About this program

Comparative Look at Migration and Refugees Along the Mediterranean and US-Mexico Borderlands

Engage deeply with the histories and contemporary realities of migrant and refugee communities along the Mediterranean and US/Mexico Border corridors. This program will conduct a comparative analysis of migrant and refugee narratives in the Mediterranean sea corridor and migrant experiences (including experiences of undocumented migrants) at the US-Mexico Borderlands.

The course will ask questions like: What are the underlying reasons driving how and why states militarize borders? What strategies are used to deter migration in both sites? How do “threat narratives” shape the ways migrant and refugee communities are racialized/gendered in their “host” country?

Students will:

  • Meet Virtually with local NGOs, migrant collectives, and scholars from the Centro Internacional de Estudios Decoloniales (the International Center for Decolonial Studies)
  • Engage with Augmented Reality and possibly Virtual Reality to experience the sites examined in the class.
  • Learn how to create augmented reality research galleries and podcasts
  • Learn basic proficiency in Augmented Reality applications and XD Adobe
