Nationalism Course

 Subscribe in a reader

 

  1. Based on lectures from my courses in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict and the Politics of Population Change in the Department of Politics at Birkbeck College, University of London.
  2. If you can attend lectures and seminars twice a week for two years (or four times a week for one year) in London (Bloomsbury WC1), you can take this course live. It runs from 6-8 pm so you can easily attend after work.
  3. The course forms part of the Masters programme in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict and Masters programme in the Politics of Population, Migration and Ecology. It is also part of the Undergraduate Politics programme. Both are based in the Department of Politics at Birkbeck College, University of London.
