Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Today, we face a new wave of nationalism throughout the world. Based on contemporary theories on nationalism this seminar will focus on the role schools are playing in producing and reproducing ‘nationalist literacies’ in the new generations, making them perceptible for both, everyday ‘banal’ nationalism and, in extreme conditions, militant nationalism.
Based on selected historical sources and more recent research literature the seminar aims to understand the interrelation between schooling, curriculum and nationalism.
People with only limited skills in English are still welcomed. Translation help in the discussion will be provided.

The well prepared and active participation is mandatory. A written test (5 to 6 questions) at the end of the semester will make up the grade of the seminar.
