Transnational Lives in a Globalizing World

Transnationalism is a novel yet important topic in social work against the background of globalization. This course explores the conditions, politics, and impacts of immigrants’, as well as immigrant families’, sustained relationships (physical, material, symbolic, and/or imagined) with their homelands, and the implications of such relationships for social work (knowledge, policy, and practice) in this increasingly interdependent world.
