What is it like to be forced out of one's land for reasons of faith, economic pressures, or political conflicts? This course will consider the historical experience of exile through the study of four communities: Jews forced out of Spain and Portugal in the 15th and 16th century, Huguenots forced to leave France due to the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, Irish men and women forced to leave Ireland following the potato famine of the 1840s, and the Muslim Rohingya people forced out of Myanmar within the last five years.
