Program Description:
Description
The proposed course is built around several interconnected OSUN research and teaching themes including conflict resolution, ethnic relations, migration, nationalism and transnationalism, human rights, and urban development as well as the more general intersections of religion and politics. The proposed course responds to a world framed by conflict related refugees and asylum seekers, rising populism and exclusionary political rhetoric and policies. It builds on the study of, and participation in, progressive and critical movements formed by cosmopolitan values and practices based upon principles of universal hospitality and mutual recognition. The key terms of the proposed course include identity, migration, refugees, asylum, exclusion/inclusion, shared space, the city as refuge, memorialisation, notions of home and homecoming. The 11 proposed sessions of the course are: (i) Violence, migration, identity (ii) Critical responses to local/global fragmentation (iii) Hospitality (iv) Hostility (v) Critical Geography and theories of space and place (vi) Contested landscapes (vii) The city as refuge: urban ritual, sharing, belonging (viii) Populism and exclusionary/inclusionary politics (ix) Coming home: the self in the world and the world in the self (x) Conclusions and explorations: Towards and Open Society.
