ANTHRO 316: Politics of the Mass Subject

Harbinger of democracy or arbiter of tyrannous rule? Source of collective agency or threat to political order?

Drawing on historical, ethnographic, and theoretical readings, this course explores how tensions haunting these concepts continue to animate, as much as beleaguer, contemporary discussions of democratic citizenship and political modernity.
