Synopsis: Unit explores concepts of nationality and ethnicity as global phenomena, and their role in and implications for, the incidence of communal conflict in varied political, social, economic and cultural settings. A combination of theory and case-study work on examples of current significance domestically and internationally are used. The unit aims to enhance students' capacities for critical thought and analysis, written and oral communication, independent and self-organized research using both library and InterNet resources, and self-reflection about the ethical, social and moral implications of politically and culturally categorizing people primarily in terms of their ethnicity or nationality.
