MA course on migration and health in southern Africa

I coordinate a MA module on migration and health in Southern Africa at Wits University.  The latest (2018) course outline can be found here.

During the course, we reflect on the state of global scholarship on migration and health.

Drawing on the course readings, seminar discussions, and wider reading, students are asked to develop an essay that considers knowledge production about migration and health in the global South. Students may want to consider intersections between the politics of knowledge and the geopolitical privileging of certain knowledge and scholarship over others. For example: Who is producing this knowledge? Whose knowledge counts? What approaches to research and knowledge production are needed?

I have invited the current cohort of students to contribute their essays and thoughts on this blog.
