Political sociology can be understood as the study of how “society” engages in political processes. Another way of approaching this relationship is to consider how political power is contested by, distributed among, and impacting different social groups.
This course seeks to introduce students to various topics and debates pertaining to political sociology, including power, nation-states and empires, the state as a political actor, political participation, revolutions, social movements, and globalization. A central, overarching theme is the interplay between macro-sociological processes and micro-sociological actors.
Teaching is provided in the form of compulsory mini-workshops and seminars that strongly emphasize student leadership and participation.
