HIST 227 Race and Migration in Modern Europe

Popular wisdom holds that Europe today faces a migration "crisis" that poses unprecedented challenges to European identity and security. In reality, the history of modern Europe has often been a history of human movement, and these movements have shaped what it means to be "European." This course will introduce students to the intersecting historiographies of migration and race in modern Europe. It will also explore topics of empire, surveillance, sexuality, race, and religion.
