Pełny opis:

This internet seminar examines key processes, theories and regulatory institutions relating to migration, its determinants and consequences. These problems will be discussed in relation the most important social, cultural, economic, political and demographic changes. The problem of spatial mobility will be analysed in relation to Poland, Europe and the world. The seminar includes such themes as: theories of spatial mobility, characteristics of migration in XIX, XX and XXI centuries, migration forecasts. It will also debate established concepts and major dichotomies in migration studies as well as consider implications of developments in migration theory for sociology.

The seminar will consist of the following topics:

* understanding the concept of migration and diverse forms of mobility in the contemporary world

* using the established theories of migration to analyse migration in the contemporary world

* understanding the relationship between migration and policy

* discussing new ways of conceptualising migration and contested concepts: transnational and liquid migration, and (re)bordering

* conceptualising the diversity of a contemporary society

* understanding the shift from migration as a subfield of study to mobility as a new paradigm.

Metody i kryteria oceniania:

The course will be completed on the basis of a regular fulfilment of tasks during the duration of the course, AND completing a short final test at class at the end of the course.

This course will last 6 weeks. Each week a different topic will be discussed. It will be delivered on the UW KAMPUS platform and will start in the second half of October (30 hours in total).

Students should be aware that a good grade will require quite intensive work during this short period. You will be asked to complete tasks such as: quizzes, participation in an obligatory and non-obligatory discussion, a short case study, and a presentation. During the course there will be a total of 6 quizzes and 4 other assignments to complete. All quizzes and tasks will be graded on a scale from 0 to 10.To complete the course, students need to collect at least 50% points from quizzes and assignments. If required, individual students can sit an extended exam on this subject (on the basis of a wider curriculum).

If students have not met the above criteria on time, they will be given an additional time to complete outstanding quizzes/assignments (to collect at least 50% points) and/or can resit the final test during the additional exam period.

Due to the on-line character of the course, absence rules do not apply.
