Considering how migration shapes our world

In the not too distant past, human experiences largely were limited to a neighborhood defined by the distance people could walk in a short period. It was a rare event when people moved a great distance, and even rarer still when a large group made a journey together.

Our contemporary world, however, is dominated by movement. People, products, ideas – even data, information and capital – move quickly and in vast quantities around the globe.

How have historical movements changed the world in which we live? What are the dominant migrations of today? How will contemporary realignments of both people and their material and intellectual products alter the future? The Migration Project brings the departments of SAU together in a year-long, multifaceted look at a world on the move.

One's destination is never a place,
but a different way of seeing things.

~Arthur Miller
