PSYCH 465 - Psychology of Nationalism


Credits: 4
An examination of the psychological dimensions of nationalism. Current research and theory in cognitive and clinical psychology will be applied towards understanding how and why people form groups, the implications of group membership for individual thinking and behavior, and the emotional processes that may play a role in transforming differences between national groups into violent action. Several case studies of nationalist conflict, both Western and non-Western, will be examined. This course emphasizes discussion and participation.
