The course will be followed by the publication of a short student-anthology consisting of the best case studies made by the students on the course.

However, the final publication of the papers also depends on the scientific quality of the individual work.

Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course focuses mainly on the question of which were the patterns of political bottom up participation of numerically-relevant population groups in political decisions made by the different examined forms of government. This question should be answered from a comparative perspective with what we nowadays think as democratic means of decision making: What forms of participation existed in the various forms of government, which do not exist and which government-population interactions were only patterns of pretense political participation?
Another special emphasis is given to the why and why not of the inclusion or exclusion of different groups of the population in the various forms of political participation. For this very reason the course will also put attention on social political phenomena such as economic exploitation, ethnic or sexist conflict and oppression, emancipatory processes, political empowerment of social groups, legitimation of power and government, as well as resource and partisan mobilization of political groups.
In their case studies the course participants will focus on one unique country and should research the specific evolvement of political participation from “below” since the 19th century. The starting point of the study should be around the year 1800, as it is the turning point when, in the western world, modernity started to outstrip the ancien régime. The several case studies will focus on a selection of today’s most powerful countries on each continent:
Asia: China, Japan, Indonesia, India, Iran, Turkey.
Europe: Germany, France, England, Russia.
Africa: South Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Egypt.
South America: Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela.
North America: USA, Mexico.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

In addition to the assessment of active participation as performance evaluation, two written pieces of homework will be required: first a theoretical reading and deduction of research questions and categories of analysis for the case studies; second a longue durée study of 5 pages on one of the above countries. The paper will be followed by a ten-minute presentation on one’s case study.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The course serves as an introduction to the research and planning of scientific work in the field of global history. Based on the historical development of political participation from "below" in today's most influential political system of the globe, students are made aware of intercultural and ideological interactions in the longue durée, always taking into account the economical and technological disjunctions, as well as global dependency relations.

Prüfungsstoff

Our elaboration of the research categories, which will guide the students’ case studies, will be based on social science theories of social change, civil society and social movements, research on democracies, dictatorships and monarchies, and the discourses of global, social and political history. Following these categories the case studies should summarize the historical development of political participation from "below". The categories will also be helpful in making the case studies comparable for discussion in class, to point out both common and contradictory developments in the different countries and world regions.
