Examination of current controversies and larger ethical issues in today's global society. Topics could include: immigration, global environmental debates, and population issues. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms to a maximum of 3 hours if topics vary.
This course investigates what is at stake in various processes of European inclusion and exclusion (e.g. the EU, Euroscepticism, citizenship, normative understandings of -European-ness,- etc.). A theme throughout this course will be the ideological construction of a European other (an imaged -not-Europe-) and internal and external othering processes. Special emphasis will be given to studying nationalist populism in Europe (in comparison to the United States) and its relation to neoliberal capitalism, religion, nativism, immigration, and globalization.
