New Master's Course: Religion, Migration and Citizenship
At The Faculty of Theology a new master program has been developed, called Religion and Diversity: Conflict and Coexistence (REDI), starting fall 2017. As a result of NORDHOST, the course Religion, Migration and Citizenship is developed as part of the new program.
The aim of Religion, Migration and Citizenship is to deepen and expand competence within some key topics in the religion and migration context. The course will present important topics connected to migration and religion. Both content-related and methodological issues will be addressed. The focus will be on contested issues like the host/guest binary, the victim/agent binary and discussions of citizenship. There will be a focus on bottom up research approaches, both in the term paper and in the more epistemological approach.
Specific aspects of diversity, gender and intersectionality relate to the migration topic. These will be presented and discussed related to specific cases.
