Theories of Political Community

This course is organized around key themes of political communities, including: founding (who are “the people,”? how is a polity founded? can the political community be broken and/or re-constituted?), membership (who is a citizen? how do you become a citizen? can citizenship be reconstituted?), and solidarity (what keeps the political project together? how should difference be managed? what political virtues are required?). It will also consider the ways that globalisation and diversity re-shapes these elements of political life.
