Kultur, Identitet, Politik

2019/2020

Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

The objective of the module is to provide students with knowledge of theoretical and methodological discussions within the themes of culture, identity and politics in the context of refugees and migration. The module will link the more general theoretical analyses within the three fields with a specific analysis of refugees and migrants, both while they are on the move and when they arrive.

The module includes themes within:

  • Culture and identity issues of refugees and migrants - also from a political perspective.
  • Cultural and identity-related analyses of the strategies refugees use as a group and to identify themselves politically and in relation to other groups.

The module consists of lectures and seminars, possibly with exercises and student contributions.
