Cyber mobility and social change

Migration (or broader: mobility) has been a catalyst for social change and development since it ever started. In the cyber age, when our world is nothing more than a global village, its digital dimension affects everyday life at both micro- and macro-perspectives. With increasingly complex mobility patterns, people “on the move” interact not only with each other, but also influence their original communities, the transit and destination ones, as they bring about new trends, norms change, rules and practices. The aim of the course is to introduce the students to the concepts of lifestyle migration, amenity migration, digital nomadism, neo-nomadism and bohemian lifestyle migration, as well as the implications that the new life philosophies bring in the contemporary world (i.e. in the labor markets, education, social life). The module is based on workshop formula with much space dedicated to debates and work in groups. At the end of the course students will present an individual project.
