What does the term "transnational" mean? How is the term defined, practiced, and studied in different fields? How does one take a transnational perspective, or examine the transnational variable? This course will draw from various fields (sociology, history, anthropology, ethnic studies, etc.) to explore contemporary scholarship on transnationalism in theory and in practice. Specifically, we will examine scholarship that either, 1) utilizes the transnational perspective in understanding history, the globe, and human behavior/interactions, or 2) utilizes transnational behaviors/ties as a variable to measurement adaptation. Materials in this course will examine - through the lens of race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality - individual and comparative transnational case studies related to the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe. This is a graduate seminar, and your active participation in discussions is mandatory. You will be asked to lead four seminar discussions on selected topics from the required readings, write three memos, and submit an extended book review.
