Migrations: A Global, Interdisciplinary, Multispecies Examination (video)

Our world is increasingly in motion. In a new interdisciplinary course, "Migrations: A Global, Interdisciplinary, Multispecies Examination" (DSOC 4940), we approach migrations as multispecies phenomena emerging from dynamic socioecological systems. Part of Migrations: A Global Grand Challenge, our curriculum will be built around weekly public talks and class discussions. DSOC 4940 offers students the opportunity to expand their knowledge of migrations and migration research and engage with experts conducting groundbreaking work in a range of areas.
