Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This series of lectures emerges from a reflexion on what can an anthropological point of view bring to the study of mobility and transnational. My aim is to go beyond the macro level and have a closer look on what is going on at the level of the actors. How do they live on a day-to-day basis? What are their practices, their life stories? In other words, we will consider the processes that one calls 'globalisation' as the product of human beings, the practices of whom we have to study using mainly with an ethnographical approach.
1. 'Mobility and transnational. Follow the actors'
2. 'Mobility and transnational. Follow the idea'
3. 'Mobility and transnational. Follow the product'
