CUPE 3912 Job Posting for Part-Time Instructor 

Course: IDST 4415/IDST 6641.1  

Course Title: Special Topic: Borders, Migration, and Development  

Department: International Development Studies Program, Faculty of Arts, Saint Mary’s University  Semester: Fall 2021 (September 8, 2021 – December 21, 2021)  

Schedule: Lectures: Mondays, 4:00 – 6:29 pm  

Course Description: 

This course explores the relationships between migrations, borders – as sites of spatial and temporal  control of transnational flows of goods, capital and people – and development in the context of Africa  and Europe. Moving beyond the discussions on diasporas and the effects of economic and social  remittances on poverty reduction the course will examine the theoretical constructs purporting to explain  migration from individual decision and family strategy models to more complex critical and Marxist  perspectives on migration as an integral part of colonial histories and of uneven capitalist development.  More recent approaches to migration studies including those factoring in institutions, migrant networks,  globalization processes, migration policies and governance, gender differences, environmental  degradation and political and ethnic strife and violence will also be discussed.  

Cross border flows, within and out of Africa and its sub regions, will be examined in their historical and  quantitative dimensions. There will be a discussion of various categories of flows (seasonal, circular,  labour, irregular, forced, trafficking) and the effects on these flows of borders as spatial  exclusionary/inclusionary mechanisms and as temporal controls leaving some migrants in uncertainty  and precarity for long periods of time. The changing volumes of African migrations with the emergence  of migration corridors between African countries and from Africa to the Global North, shape a mobility  pattern in which half of African nations’ emigrants move and live within the region and the other half  live outside Africa with the large majority in Europe. This pattern, explained by historical ties,  geographic proximity and migration chains, is being increasingly challenged by European Union leaders  and bureaucrats.  

The externalization policy adopted by the EU consists in “debordering” the Union i.e. pushing the border  to Africa and the Middle East with massive outlays of migration – tied development aid to origin and  corridor states aiming to contain mobility through local development, better border enforcement and return acceptance. The course will encourage debate on this and other migration management policies  from the Global North and the collective and individual responses of African states.  

Additional Details:  

Qualifications:  

The successful applicant will possess a PhD in IDS or a related field. They will be a migration and  development scholar with a research focus on the Africa-EU nexus and university teaching experience  at upper undergraduate and graduate levels. Although PhDs are preferred, ABDs might be considered  under exceptional circumstances. Experience with remote / online delivery is an asset.
