Diasporas: The Great Geographic Dislocations of History

Overview: There is much emphasis today on the concerns of migration and dislocation due to war, catastrophe, and economic opportunity. The effects of large scale migration are significant both for the losing area and the gaining area and have both short and long term implications.

Purpose: The purpose is to acquaint students with several different diasporas throughout history and give them the opportunity to explore and analyze another diaspora and prepare a presentation on that topic.
