Through an interdisciplinary approach to environmental humanities and migration, this course links transoceanic diasporic communities, with a focus on Caribbean and Pacific Studies. With the ocean and its diverse currents serving as both principal metaphor and method, the course will utilize historical, literary, and artistic analyses, engage with guest speakers, and take field trips to ocean-related projects and diasporic communities in New York City. Participants are encouraged to bring their own special skills and passions (art, design, literature, technology, etc.) to the table to create innovative methodologies for writing on and conceptualizing migration in its manifold dimensions.
