This seminar examines the emergence of new, qualitatively different kinds of welfare states across the advanced capitalist world in the past three decades. The seminar is comparative, examining the causes and consequences of the crisis and transformation of the welfare state in Western Europe and North America. Topics will include: welfare, workfare, and healthcare reform; taxation; race, gender, and the welfare state; and the impact of globalization and deindustrialization on welfare states. The primary assignment for the course is a substantial research paper. Several weeks of the course will be devoted to workshopping research proposals and drafts of papers.
