In this course, we will review key theories concerning the concepts of nationalism and ethnicity and examine how nationalism and ethnicity affect people's lives in places throughout the world. While these concepts have been studied by scholars in many disciplines, this course will focus on ethnographic approaches that emphasize how people in particular locations come to see themselves as belonging to nations and ethnic groups. Some of the central questions that we will address in this course are: How are culture, power and history involved in the construction of nations and ethnic groups? What is the relationship between nationalism, ethnicity and the state? How do nationalism and ethnicity relate to gender, race, and religious identity? How has globalization changed national and ethnic identities and nationalist and ethnic politics?
