Examine how individual humans move within a network or system through theories (e.g. Locke on portable property), vehicles (boats), travelers (pirates, pilgrims, migrants), media (books, money, gravestones, genealogies) to recognize the phenomenon of mobility and its consequences. This course enables you to cultivate an eye for seeing mobile phenomena, and to analyze how they are at the heart of the big issues: capitalism, colonialism, imperialism, race, religion, diaspora, migration and security.
