POLS 271 Nations and Nationalism Select Term:
The aim of this course is to interrogate some of the most recent and important theorizing on nationalism and see to what extent they make sense in various empirical contexts . The emphasis of the course will be on theorizing nationalism rather than producing quasi-naturalistic explanations of its emergence, success or failure. In addition to reviewing the major theoretical accounts of nations and nationalism, the course will also discuss a multiplicity of empirical cases from Eastern Europe, Middle East, ex-Soviet Union territories and China.
