Radical Nationalism in Contemporary Northern Europe, [SCAN 3301]: Fall 2013 New Core Course

This course explores the recent rise of neo-Nazism, white separatism, Islamophobia and anti-immigrant sentiment in the Nordic countries. Recognizing that radical nationalism is an aesthetic, social and intellectual movement in addition to being a political cause, our survey in this course will be multidisciplinary. We will consult scholarship from sociology, cultural studies, anthropology, philosophy, criminology and political science, as well as music, literature and film. No prereqs. A&S core requirement: ideals and values.
