This is a good class to figure out if you're interested in global migration. The class was structured so that each week you read the introductory chapter of someone's book on migration (we read about Indian migration to oil-producing Arab states, Brexit politics, Eastern European migration to the U.S. in the early 1900s, Vietnamese segregation in Berlin, etc. - all very specific ethnographies), which is typically about 20 pages, then you write a 300-500 word response to the Professor's prompt and pose a question to ask the author. Then every week we have a virtual meeting with the author in which they discuss their work in further detail and we can ask them questions. This could add up to quite a bit of work for only a 1-credit class, and sometimes took me an hour/week, but luckily we didn't meet every week, we only met maybe 5x throughout the quarter. So all in all, it wasn't too much work at all, and I learned some thought-provoking information.
