RES 330: Nationalism, Spring 2011

Nationalism is one of the great ideas of the 20th century and certainly the most successful. It has shaped and reshaped our world and our own understandings of it in ways we often do not realize. Nationalism's core belief that the world is naturally devided into nations based on distinctive national characteristics such as language and culture, is deeply embedded in our minds. But has it always been like this? Is global history a history of competing nationalisms, or have there been alternative ways of conceiving the world? And what of the future? Has nationalism run its course? Will it be replaced by a new globalism that will break borders and national divisions? It is unlikely we will answer all these questions, but we will, at the end of this course, be able to discuss them intelligently.
