One of the most controversial issues in the world today is the
massive movement of people across national borders.  What kinds of
people migrate today and why?  How does immigration affect how
countries define their national identity and their citizenship
laws?  Immigration and citizenship involve more than questions of
rights and responsibilities; they also inspire debates about what it
means to "belong" in a society or nation.  This course will look at
anthropological approaches to studying citizenship and immigration
around the world.  We will focus on current debates about topics
such as the European Union, headscarves in France, indigenous
rights, post-9/11 U.S. immigration policy, multiculturalism, "mail
order brides," and postnational citizenship.
