HIST 583 Ethnicity and Nationalism Select Term:
This course aims to explore relations (or the absence of relations) between nationalism and ethnicity in different contexts such as the Ottoman empire, Germany and the Russian empire. The course is designed not only for developing a comparative and context-sensitive approach to nationalism and ethnicity, but also for attempting a collective enquiry into the emergence and transformation of the concepts of "nation", "nationalism", "patriotism" and "ethnicity" through time. While surveying the classical and current theories of nationalism and ethnicity, the course also aims to address the concept of social organization, the symbolic universe and collective memory as relevant concepts of the social sciences.
