Citizenship in Contemp Asia

Fall 2019

Taught By: Mark W. Frazier

Section: A

CRN: 7918

Credits: 3

This course examines conflict over the forms and meanings of citizenship in contemporary Asia, a region of rapid urbanization and mass migration, as well as socio-economic transformation. Some forms of citizenship have been disrupted, and new channels for citizenship claims have opened. The course covers theories on the production of different forms of citizenship, and asks how observations drawn from contemporary East and South Asia reveal shortcomings in these theories. We also ask how different forms and scales of citizenship (social citizenship, urban citizenship, national citizenship, among others) intersect with other identities, including class, gender, caste, religion, ethnicity, etc.
