1.07.095 Religion, Nationalism, Populism (Lehrsprache Englisch, Prüfungsleistung Deutsch oder Englisch)


  • Dienstag: 12:00 - 14:00, wöchentlich


One of the most visible aspects of globalization is increasing migration and ethnic & cultural diversity, which influences majority and minority experiences in societies, and challenges the conventional nation state models. This seminar discusses the large group dynamics and the practices and policies of different states ranging from Europe, North America to Australia and New Zealand.

Also, one troubling consequence of the increased migration and ethnic & cultural diversity is the fluctuating prejudices between different groups. Prejudices are ubiquitous. They take particular forms in the context of migration and challenged nation state model. For example, in the contemporary societies, religion seems to play an important role in terms of symbolic boundary making and social inclusion vs. exclusion mechanisms.

This course is designed to acquaint students with some selected works from the enormous body of literature on prejudice and migration. Selected class material includes works from nationalism & citizenship studies and political psychology.
