POLT 314 - Citizenship and Statelessness in Comparative Perspective

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
Are citizenship rules determined based on material considerations? Or are such policies based on racial and civilizational notions shaped by encounters with pre-colonial and colonial forces? In this seminar, we will consider these questions about belonging and territorial definitions, which are often politically contested. We will consider some theoretical explanations of citizenship, and then look at case studies from Western and non-Western nations. Class discussion will be complemented with expert interviews via Zoom.

Prerequisites: one introductory course in POLT, or any course or previous project related to the themes being covered in this course.
