Ethnicity and Nationalism (3)

Course Level: Undergraduate/Graduate

Ethnicity has become a universal means for groups to defend their interests, avoid alienation, and create powerful rituals of self-preservation and defense. This course examines ways that groups in complex societies and new nations use ethnicity and nationalism to express and enact community and identity, similarity and difference, peaceful social relations, warfare, and genocide. Prerequisite: two courses in anthropology or graduate standing.
