In this class, we will examine the ways in which people moved to work: moving within a single country, moving across national borders, and moving as a part of the job itself. How did such moves change the lives of both the workers and their families?

This guide has great resources to supplement the course and help you with your final paper. Feel free to navigate using the tabs above. If you have any questions, please visit, email, or chat with an ILR reference librarian using the contact information on the right.
