History of ConsciousnessHISC 222A Theories of Late Capitalism

Looks at the theoretical literature on what is variously called late capitalism/postindustrialism/postfordism, and in that context considers the rise of nationalism and identity politics in the latter part of the 20th century. The primary focus is on the U.S. and Western Europe, but questions of the globalization of capital and the transformation of relations between the West and the Third World are also considered. Written work for the course consists of weekly short papers. (Formerly Theories of Late Capitalism, Nationalism, and the Politics of Identity.)


Enrollment is restricted to graduate students.
