Topics in Comparative Politics IV
The broad goal of this seminar is to raise and explore important questions about identities including the following: How are identities formed? How do they evolve over time? What do identities do in political economic life? Why are some identities more salient than others? What are the epistemological and ethical consequences of various ways of conceptualizing identities? We will explore cases from around the world, even though dynamics in Africa will receive particular attention.
