Migration is a movement of people, money and cultures. It is a journey that starts with hope, but may bring to despair; a venture that can end in loss or accomplishments. Migration is a passage through the new and a rethinking of the old. In this course, we will explore migration as a feature of post-Soviet transition and as a factor, which influences economic, political and cultural developments in the new independent states. We will pay particular attention on mobility in the Soviet period (restrictions of movement, exiles, etc.), post-Soviet migration patterns and policies, cultural flows and new everyday practices, nationalism and transnationalism developments, etc. We will explore migration not only as a movement of people, cultures and money, but also think about the emotions related to it. We will discuss both relevant theories and empirical anthropological materials (visual, textual, oral, etc.). During the course, the students will not only obtain knowledge on the above-mentioned issues, but also practice anthropological field research skills.
