About the course

Since the Enlightenment, nationalism has driven identity formation, state- and nation-building in many parts of the world. Using historical and present-day cases from the post-Soviet space, this problem-centred course examines both nationalism in theory, and specific issues arising from nationalism, as well as how it relates to other factors in political, cultural and social development. A prior familiarity with the countries of the region (Russia, former USSR, or Eastern Europe) is assumed.
