Home and Other Figments: Immigration, Exile, and Uprootedness (PSY2238.01)

Sean Akerman

The unique experience of uprootedness provides an opportunity to ask questions about home, identity, and the transmission of the past. In this course, we will look closely at the experience of exile as one that we can all relate to, in addition to the many meanings that the word “home” carries. We will also examine several populations around the world that have been displaced because of social or political situations, and ask questions about the relationships between generations, in addition to much more.
