POLISCI 432R: Selections in Modern Political Thought (ETHICSOC 432X)

This graduate-level seminar explores selections from the canon of Western political thought from the late fifteenth through nineteenth centuries. Throughout the course, we will engage in close textual readings of individual thinkers and consider some of the larger questions raised by political modernity. This offering will focus on American political thought from the Puritan era through the turn of the 20th century. We will pay special attention to dissenting voices and to texts that address the settler empire, slavery, and the color line. Thinkers covered will include: John Winthrop, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, "Brutus," William Apess, Henry David Thoreau, John C. Calhoun, David Walker, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and W.E.B. Du Bois.
