POLISCI 223: Gender & U.S. Politics

Why are women still underrepresented in US political office, and what evidence do we have that increasing women's political representation is important? This course discusses the following main topics: What is the status quo of female candidacy in the US? What are the demographics of the current female political candidates, what offices do they run for and why? What evidence do we have that descriptive representation is important for policy and other political and social outcomes? What evidence do we have on what keeps women from running for office? Do campaign finance and support networks play a role? Can gender quota help to increase women's political representation? The course discusses state-of-the art literature from political science, economics and sociology using empirical evidence on the lack of women in US politics, how female representation affects policy, what may change the status quo and what we can expect for the future.

POLISCI 235: Chinese Political Thought: 1895-2021 (POLISCI 335)

Everybody is talking about China now. The competition between China and the Western world is not only about economic growth, technological advancement, and military strength. What is ultimately at stake is a key theoretical question: Can China's political traditions and current practices (such as one-party meritocracy) offer a legitimate and desirable alternative to the ideal of liberal democracy? This course aims to approach this question through the lens of intellectual history and political theory. Attention is given to how Chinese thinkers since 1895 have conceived of China's place in the world, how they have used Western political ideas to transform China, how they have creatively transformed Chinese traditions to meet the challenge of modernity, and, most importantly, how they have advanced political ideals that claim to be able fix the problems in the West (such as imperialism and capitalism). We will also learn how Western thinkers are responding to the challenge from China. The first half of the course covers foundational texts in Chinese intellectual history from 1895 to the Maoist Era. The second half is about political thinking in contemporary China. No prior knowledge about China, Chinese, or political theory/philosophy is required.
