Uitgebreide vaknaam Minorities in Contemporary Europe II
Leerdoelen Students will learn about basic concepts in social sciences like globalization, inequality, migration, identity politics, multiculturalism, and retrenchment and they will learn how these concepts are linked to linguistic and ethnic diversity across the globe and have an effect on both indigenous and migrant minorities. The course takes a particular focus on Europe and the post-war era and is aimed
Omschrijving National cultures in Europe are not as monolithic as they might seem. European nation states contain all kinds of groups of people who differ from the mainstream of the social majority: minorities. This course introduces students to minority groups who differentiate themselves primarily by their ethnicity and/or language. These can either be migrant minorities who recently immigrated into Europe, or indigenous minorities with a long history within Europe.
Over the fourteen weeks of this course students will receive a thorough overview of the great cultural diversity of Europe in recent history, the most dominant points of view held on minorities, as well as on the gains and threats of multicultural society. Through reading and discussion of texts by major authors in this field students will gain knowledge to help them understand how conflicts come about and how they can be avoided or solved.
Making a portfolio or a presentation on specific cases will help the students to further deepen their knowledge and understanding of minorities and minority conflict.
