DWA 235 Nationalism and Ethnicity

This course will explore nationalism and ethnicity from both a theoretical and empirical perspective. Nationalist and ethnic discourses have always been central to political movements, rebellions, and revolutions. The passions and commitment of individual members in these movements often lead to political ideologies and war tactics that are violent, and which encompass entire communities. The course will use examples from Southern Africa, South Asia, and Eastern Europe.
