Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Ethnic diversity and majority-minority relations are, in the words of Inis Claude (1955), ‘a perennial problem of politics’. This course will examine various attempts – both theoretical and implemented in practice – that were made in order to address this problem. Encompassing the period from the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth century and with the stress on (post-) Habsburg space with its changing political settings, the course will familiarise students with selected approaches towards managing ethno-national diversity, such as federalism, cultural autonomy, minority rights, as well as assimilation and cultural amalgamation. In addition to our central focus on the (former) Habsburg lands, we will devote attention to the associated developments in the broader Central and Eastern European regions, whilst also examining the international scene, and the key turning points such as the Paris Peace Conference. The overall aim of the course is to introduce students to both theories of ethnic diversity management, and to the pitfalls in their practical implementation through a variety of historical documents, with a view of sharpening their critical skills. Primary texts will be accompanied by relevant secondary literature, enabling contextualisation and providing the necessary background knowledge. Albeit taught in English, the course will draw on both anglophone and germanophone sources. By intellectually engaging with the sources through close readings and class discussions, students will also learn to appreciate the methodology used in interpreting historical documents, as well as further developing their own analytical skills.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The course is based upon an integrated learning model, consisting of close reading of historical sources and associated secondary texts, followed by a class discussion. Students will be asked to attend classes having read the recommended literature (downloadable from Moodle) in advance, in order to be able to discuss it in class. Every student will be assigned one ten-minute class presentation based on selected readings, as well as submitting a short essay based on that presentation at the end of the course. For each class, students will be asked to write a single-paragraph summary of one selected reading. As a rule, all assigned literature will be read by all students. On occasion, in order to stimulate class debates, the class will be divided into smaller groups that will be assigned different readings.Additional information on the course will be provided during the first session. Sessions 1-3 are introductory sessions during which students will get acquainted with the basic concepts, definitions, and theories.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Evaluation and marking is based on: class participation (20%); weekly one-paragraph summary of a chosen reading (20%); individual class presentation (30%); short essay (1,000-1,500 words) based on the class presentation (30%).
