Comparative Ethnic Politics

Comparative Ethnic Politics
In this seminar we will explore critical questions concerning the impact of ethnic diversity on politics across a wide range of societies. First, we will discuss the construction of ethnic identities, and how these identities are mobilized politically. Second, we will examine the impact of ethnic mobilization on democratic politics. Third, we will look at whether mobilized ethnic identities contribute to an increased likelihood of ethnic conflict. Fourth, we will turn to in-depth case studies to illustrate theories discussed throughout the semester. Students will be able to build upon their own interests through a research paper on a topic of their choosing. 3 hrs. sem.
