ID 283 - Cultures in Exile

This course explores both the concept and context of exile in the contemporary world from the perspective of those who experience it, create cultural artefacts about those experiences, and contribute to transformations-small and large-of the communities and cultures that define their identity in exile. While we will draw on social science analyses of exile, home, belonging, diaspora, transnationalism, and so forth, special emphasis will be given to narratives exploring these concepts created by exiles themselves.
