This course examines the dynamic relationship between politics and culture. The central concern of this course is to explore, historically and comparatively, social processes in which various types of categorical identities are formulated and revised. Through a focus on concrete issues as diverse as the formation of race, ethnicity, citizenship and national identities, cultural and bodily identities, and aesthetic tastes, scientific categories, this course investigates various ways of approaching how changes in large-scale social/state structures and the transformation of social/cultural categories are mutually related. This seminar also offers an introduction to Comparative Historical Sociology.
