Identities and Elections: Canada in Comparative Perspective


This course will examine the link between social identities and political behaviour. Multiple kinds of identities will be examined, including ethnic, gender, national, and party identities, among others. These identities affect politics and public opinion, and are in turn influenced by political events and social context. The course will draw on political science and social-psychology research from both Canada and other countries.
