POLISCI 426: Identity Politics

Whether one considers the partisan and electoral choices citizens make or the judgments individuals render in response to controversial events or the crisis of democracy in the United States and around the world, it is hard to overstate the central role identity plays in shaping various political outcomes.But what is an identity? What are the conditions under which identities become politicized? How do identities work to structure attitudes and affect behavior? And how can we move beyond old ways of thinking about identity to chart new, path-breaking lines of inquiry? Taking an interdisciplinary and cross-subfield approach, this course seeks to bring students into conversation with scholarship that demonstrates the powerful¿and sometimes subtle¿ways that identities influence all aspects of our politics.In addition to carefully engaging scholarship from across the social sciences, students will be encouraged to think critically and creatively about identity as it relates to their own intellectual pursuits. Students enrolled in the course will be expected to be active and engaged seminar participants. Throughout the course, students will write critical reviews of scholarly articles and will submit a research paper or a grant-style research proposal as a final project.
