HON 311 - Ethnicity, Race and Nationalism


Prerequisite, acceptance to the University Honors Program, or consent of instructor. All around us we see the rising tide of ethnic, racial, and national conflicts. From terrorist acts in New York City to war in Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Rwanda, we see people divided along ethnic, religious, and national identities. Is this inevitable? What are the possible causes and consequences of these conflicts? We will explore what we mean by identity and its various representations such as ethnic, religious, and national identities today. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
