This course is a part of the wider Bard-network initiative to study nationalism both theoretically and empirically. The course would be based on studying major works on nationalism through assigned readings (to be posted on e-course), writing online notebooks as shared (with peers from other countries) texts to develop joint understanding, and on a visual image analysis at the beginning and at the end of a semester. Students would also take short quizzes at the end of each section and would write a final paper. A particular and important element of the course would be students’ engagement with their peers from other universities.
