Crossing cultural, linguistic, and political borders is an increasingly common occurrence. This course investigates the impact on our thinking and creativity when we have lived in more than one society, or if we move across cultural, linguistic, and political domains within a particular society. Through cultural studies and cultural sociology, we will explore how social, cultural, and political repositioning relates to creative and intellectual work. Students will reflect upon common points of tension and ambiguity in understanding issues of political subjectivity and cultural production in relationship to migration and mobility.
