Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course will unfold in three sections. Section one will provide the lecturer's overview on recent and current theorizing on nationalism in times of globalisation in the social sciences, the humanities and at their intersection, in anthropology in particular. Section two will then proceed to present and discuss individual anthropological entries by some of today's leading authors as they are under publication in the 'Globalisation Dictionary', co-edited by the lecturer and currently in press (in German). Section three then offers student volunteers the opportunity to organize podium discussions on selected topics of current-day interest, based on a reading list that will be provided in advance (i.e. during the first section).
This course offers an overview of recent and current theorizing on nationalism in Europe and beyond, and on that basis, it critically examines social science theories on globalization. The course's teaching goals thus are threefold, namely a) providing orientation and overview for anthropological works in both of these fields; b)offering discussion material and opportunities for in-class debates about the strengths and weaknesses among those works; c)encouraging students' curiosity to develop research questions of your own in various sub-fields of this realm.
