Topics in Comparative Politics: Politics and Identity


In this course, we will examine the relationship between politics and identity and the consequences for political stability and cohesion as a result of those relationships. We will consider different cases and explanations for the United States and, in comparative perspective, for how identity works with respect to gender, race, ethnicity, class and sexual orientation in the pursuit of political or social goals. How do these different identities impact social and political conflict, local and national cohesiveness, and political participation? Note: This course counts towards either the undergraduate Comparative Politics subfield or the American Politics subfield.
