In this course, we focus on the body of experiences related to the historical process of immigration, past and present, starting in the 19th century among the Scandinavians. Issues of homeland, emigration, immigration, settlement, language, identity, traditions, values, culture, and politics as expressed in texts and historical research, constitute the basics of this course. The histories of the Scandinavian groups are examined using a selection of scholarly studies on immigration and ethnicity in order to familiarize you with historical methods.
