Jazz and Civil Rights Movement This course acquaints students with an important and often neglected component of the twentieth-century Civil Rights Movement: how the jazz community in the United States became an important force for social, cultural, and political change on behalf of African-Americans and the civil rights movement more generally. In order to understand how musicians, promoters, journalists and music executives, and, by extension, ordinary Americans came together to confront Jim Crow and the discriminatory treatment of African-American musicians, it is necessary to understand the religious, musical and cultural traditions that Africans brought with them to the United States when they were imported as slaves.

Comparative Authoritarianism Francis Fukuyama (in)famously declared that the fall of the Soviet Union would be the end of history-in other words, there could be no more autocracy in the new era, only forms of liberal democracy would be left. Authoritarianism, however, has remained a powerful model for states across the world. This course introduces students to the different authoritarian types-from fascism to bureaucratic authoritarianism to the new hybrid regimes that incorporate elements of democracy and autocracy into their framework. The course begins by examining theories of authoritarianism and then considers the myriad examples of states which have or still do hold to undemocratic systems of rule. By the end of the course students should have a working knowledge of how to evaluate and compare authoritarian states across the world in the modern era (from 1900-today), giving them the tools to understand authoritarianism's enduring power.

Politics of the Civil Rights Movement This course examines the philosophy, tactics, events, personalities, rationales, and consequences of the Southern civil rights movement, focusing on how the movement influenced public policy. Students trace the development of the twentieth century American struggle for civil rights and become familiar with its main leaders, their tactics, and their different modes of struggle. They also analyze how class, gender, ethnicity, and especially race shaped the movement. Students study certain specific aspects of the geographically wide-spaced movement, showing how each differs. They understand how political decisions are shaped by self-interest and more deeply understand how the American political process works and particularly how white supremacy shapes it from the formation of slavery to the present day.

From the Progressive era to the present, through the courts, Congress, and state legislatures, women have effectively organized and exerted political pressure as insiders and outsiders to win humane social policies beneficial to all families and indispensable to those facing dire circumstances. The course explores social policy as a compelling arena for women's political engagement and offers a range of readings and exercises to illuminate this vital topic.

Political Economy of Inequality in Global South Inequality has become a core theme of politics across much of the world. This course addresses why and for whom inequality matters, how it evolves in different settings, and competing explanations for changes in patterns of distribution. The course emphasizes how phenomena that on the surface may appear to be strictly economic are in fact inherently political in nature. This accounts for our emphasis on political economy. The following are among the questions addressed: How do political institutions shape distributive outcomes? What is the role of competing social and political actors in shaping these outcomes? To what extent does political regime type influence distribution? And how do structural characteristics of economies, and their insertion into global networks of production and trade, determine who among competing social actors emerge as winners and losers in the struggle to secure a greater portion of the pie?
