UCPH/UC Berkeley/IARU Global Transformations: Borderland: Critical Approaches to Field Research in the Global South
03 July - 28 July 2023
Hosted by the University of Copenhagen and UC Berkeley
This course is designed to provide students with an opportunity to think critically about the research process in the conduct of research, through combined classroom learning, field engagement and immersion in local environment that include short term placement with local NGOs or ongoing research projects in and around Chiang Mai, in northern Thailand.
The course is organized around the themes of Migration, Mobilities and Immobilities that have emerged as among the most pressing 21st century challenges, that cut across 11 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. In engaging migration, mobilities and immobility, we are interested in the different forms and facets of migration (internal, cross-border; regular and irregular), and of im/mobilities – e.g. social, political, economic), as well as intersectionalities among causes and consequences of migration and im/mobilities.
