The story of migration is a shared human experience. Utilizing sources such as “Women on the Move” from National Geographic and The Everyday Projects, students will address the following questions:

Using scales of analysis, what are the common themes that are seen in migration stories?
What are the reasons that cause one to migrate?
In what ways does physical geography intersect with migration?
Based on your analysis of various sources in the media, how is migration perceived by general audiences?
Developing social and emotional learning, how do individual and under-reported stories inspire your own activism in regards to migration?
As they engage with these questions, students will be asked to utilize a variety of skills. They will compare and contrast various migration stories on different scales of analysis, analyze sources critically for author’s purpose and target audience, develop critical thinking skills to analyze complex questions that arise from migration crises, and develop persuasive writing skills that inspire letters advocating for an action to address challenges faced by people who are migrating.

0.0 stars

Thousands of people risk their lives daily by crossing borders in search of a better life. During 2015, over one million of these people arrived in Europe. Images of refugees in distress became headline news in what was considered to be the worst humanitarian crisis in Europe since 1945. This book provides a critical overview of recent migration flows and offers answers as to why people flee, what happens during their flight and investigates the various responses to mass migratory movements. Divided in two parts, the book addresses long-running academic, policy and domestic debates, drawing on case studies of migration in Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific. Coming from a variety of different fields, the contributors provide an interdisciplinary approach and open the discussion on the reasons why migration should be examined critically.

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"The protein eIF6 is involved in ribosome formation and mRNA translation and is essential for the growth and reproduction of cells, including cancer cells. However, eIF6’s role in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) remains unclear. To learn more, researchers recently analyzed eIF6 in 233 OSCC samples and in OSCC cell lines. They found that cytoplasmic eIF6 expression was abnormally high in OSCC tissues and was associated with tumor size and clinical grade. Upregulating eIF6 promoted OSCC cell growth, migration, and invasion in vitro and enhanced tumor growth in vivo. eIF6 also encouraged epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), a process necessary for cancer cell migration, in OSCC cells, but depletion of eIF6 (with sh-eIF6-2) suppressed the cancer-enhancing effects. Mechanistic studies revealed that eIF6 exerted its tumor progression-promoting effects by activating the AKT signaling pathway, and further experiments confirmed that eIF6 and AKT directly interacted in the cytoplasm..."

Dust Bowl Migration
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In 1931, a severe drought hit the Southern and Midwestern plains. As crops died and winds picked up, dust storms began. As the "Dust Bowl" photograph shows, crops literally blew away in "black blizzards" as years of poor farming practices and over-cultivation combined with the lack of rain. By 1934, 75% of the United States was severely affected by this terrible drought.The one-two punch of economic depression and bad weather put many farmers out of business. In the early 1930s, thousands of Dust Bowl refugees ? mainly from Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Kansas, and New Mexico ? packed up their families and migrated west, hoping to find work. Entire families migrated together (such as the men shown in "Three generations of Texans now Drought Refugees") in search of a better life. Images such as "Midcontinent ? Family Standing on the Road with Car," "Drought Refugees," and "Untitled, ca. 1935 (Worn-Down Family in Front of Tent)" offer a glimpse into their experience on the road, and show that cars provided many families both transportation and shelter on the road. About 200,000 of the migrants headed for California. The state needed to figure out how to absorb the thousands of destitute people crossing its borders daily. One of their tactics was to document the plight of the refugees. In 1935, photographer Dorothea Lange joined the Rural Rehabilitation Division of the California State Emergency Relief Administration (SERA), a section of the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. She was assigned the job of using her camera to document the growing number of homeless Dust Bowl refugees migrating to California. She worked with Paul S. Taylor, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, who was researching conditions of rural poverty in order to make recommendations on how to improve the workers' conditions. The work by Taylor and Lange played an important role in helping to raise public awareness of the crisis. The reports they made for the government included both data and striking images that revealed the desperate conditions in which the migrants lived and confirmed the need for government intervention. Stark images such as "Home of Oklahoma Drought Refugees" resonated with the public, and portraits of drought refugees like "Ruby from Arkansas" and others shown in this topic humanized the migrants for more fortunate citizens. In March 1936, Lange took what became one of her most famous images, "Migrant Mother." This image of a 32-year-old woman became an icon for the suffering of ordinary people during Great Depression.

The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Pancreatic cancer continues to have a high mortality rate due to a lack of effective early diagnostic and treatment approaches. However, secreted vesicles called exosomes could hold the key to unlock better strategies. These vesicles contain numerous cargoes, such as lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids and play roles in various processes, including cell–cell communication. Exosomes secreted from pancreatic cancer cells contain signaling molecules that promote cancer progression. These exosome cargoes suppress immunity, facilitate tumor blood vessel formation, and encourage fibrosis, thus creating a more pro-cancer microenvironment. Exosomes can also promote metastasis to distant regions and reprogram normal cells into cancer cells. Despite their negative effects, the molecules in cancer cell–derived exosomes can be used as valuable biomarkers for pancreatic cancer diagnosis and prognosis prediction..."

The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Lung cancer is the second most common form of cancer worldwide. The spread of lung cancer within the body is a complex process that hinges on tumor cells’ ability to migrate. One family of proteins known as Rho GTPases is known to play a central role in regulating the cell mechanics required for migration. That role is more complex that initially thought and many cross talks are involved, as a recent study highlights for the GTPase StarD13. Initial experiments showed that StarD13 is a tumor suppressor in lung adenocarcinoma, confirming previously reported results. Interestingly, StarD13 is also required for the cancer cells to migrate. StarD13 regulates cell motility by modulating the activation of RhoA and Rac1 proteins downstream. Abolishing RhoA and Rac1 in lung cancer cells was shown to compromise cells’ ability to migrate. What further proves the complexity of cancer metastasis, is that while abolishing StarD13 stopped cell migration, it actually enhanced cancer invasion in 3D..."

The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Autophagy is a critical process in healthy human cells that removes excess organelles and substances while generating energy. But in cancer cells, autophagy can either feed growing tumors—literally supplying energy—or suppress them by clearing out cancer-promoting substances. Recently, researchers examined this process in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and focused on GNIP1, a TRIM family protein. Other TRIM proteins have been associated with autophagy previously, but this is the first autophagy study to examine GNIP1. GNIP1 expression was elevated in tumor cells from NSCLC patients, and clinically, it was associated with poor prognosis and survival time. Induced overexpression of GNIP1 in cultured NSCLC cells increased the cancerous behaviors proliferation and migration. Additional cell culture experiments indicated that GNIP1 did this by enhancing autophagy. Specifically, GNIP1 mediated the breakdown of the VPS34 complex, an autophagy inhibitor..."

It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Glioblastomas are deadly, malignant brain tumors. Even with current treatment methods, the median life expectancy after diagnosis is only 15 months. This extreme treatment resistance is primarily due to changes in the tumor microenvironment (TME). Glioblastomas sometimes recruit normal cells to aid growth, and neural progenitor cells (NPCs) have been observed migrating toward glioblastomas. Understanding the interaction between tumor and non-tumor cells in the TME is critical to developing new treatments. Recently, researchers examined the effects of extracellular vesicles (EVs) from glioblastoma cell lines on the cell lines themselves and mouse NPCs (mNPCs). In both glioblastoma cell lines and mNPCs, glioblastoma-derived EVs promoted proliferation and migration. Using a combination of proteomic profiling and laboratory assays, researchers examined the potential mechanisms of this effect and identified the PI3K-Akt-mTOR pathway as a key mediator..."

Tracing the evolution of international interactions, this course examines the dimensions of globalization in terms of scale and scope. It is divided into three parts; together they are intended to provide theoretical, empirical, and policy perspectives on source and consequences of globalization, focusing on emergent structures and processes, and on the implications of flows of goods and services across national boundaries -- with special attention to the issue of migration, on the assumption that people matter and matter a lot. An important concern addressed pertains to the dilemmas of international policies that are shaped by the macro-level consequences of micro-level behavior. 17.411 fulfills undergraduate public policy requirement in the major and minor. Graduate students are expected to explore the subject in greater depth through reading and individual research.

But despite this link, scientists still aren’t sure how these disorders arise after infection. Now, researchers have homed in on a single protein produced by H pylori that seems to rev up the immune system, causing a state of inflammation that may pave the way for cancer growth or other types of gut breakdown. The protein, HP1454, is naturally released from H pylori -- both actively by living cells and passively as cells die. The scientists found that when special immune cells known as T cells encounter this secreted HP1454, they kick into action, mounting an inflammatory response. This relationship was particularly strong in people with stomach cancer..."
