POG 423 Nationalism and Identity

Nationalism and identity are examined in historical and contemporary perspectives. Historically, the concern is with the emergence of nation-states in Europe and the impact of colonialism on national identity formation. In the current context, attention is on the proliferation of ethnic and national conflicts in Asia and Africa, and Indigenous struggles in the Americas. These issues as well as identity politics and diaspora identities in the West are assessed through feminist, anti-racist, and anti-colonial outlooks. (Global) Lect: 3 hrs.
