POL 370 Nationalism, Ethnic Identity and Genocide

3 Credit(s)
This course explores the role of nationalism and ethnic identity in politics. It examines how Americans and others define the political arena, the nation and the state and the impact of these different definitions. The course will also examine case studies where differences in ethnic identity impact national politics, sometimes to the point of interethnic conflict and genocide. Readings focus on the theoretical aspects of nationalism as well as case studies. Three lecture hours per week.
