This course provides an understanding of the theoretical and conceptual bases of migration as a global phenomenon that shapes local, national and international cultures, societies, economies and politics. It draws upon a range of international and Australian case studies to explore major trends and issues, such as humanitarian migration trends, economic migration, settlements policies (such as multiculturalism), and cultural representations (such as art, film and literature).
