IR 35200 Politics and Culture

This course offers a historical and cross-regional survey of culture, history, and power using both international relations theory and a series of case studies. A substantial body of literature has now demonstrated that identity in the form of religion, ethnicity, language, and civilization shapes the outcomes of elections and the form of government in a variety of countries around the world. The course will combine the approach of historians, anthropologists, and political scientists who have studied the interaction of culture and politics.
