HIST 5190 Senior Colloquium: Nations and Nationalism (Spring: 3 )
Where do national identities come from? Why is the world divided into discrete nation-states? How has nationalism been imagined and practiced at different times and in different places? This course explores the history of nationalism and the nation form, covering a range of theoretical literature and a variety of case studies from across the nineteenth and twentieth-century world. Special attention will be given to the relationship between empire and nationalism, issues of gender and race, and the position of diaspora and political internationalism in the modern world.
