PCE 320 - Identity and Conflict (3 Cr.)

*CREDITS CHANGED TO 4 CREDITS EFFECTIVE FALL 2013
This course explores the complex interrelations of social identity and ethnic conflicts with the emphasis on the role of identity in processes of conflict resolution and transformation. Critical reflection and analysis of ethnic, national, and religious identities as both generators and outcomes of conflict will be an important part of the course. Through readings, lectures, documentaries, and simulations, the course aims to extend knowledge of the construction of various layers of social identity and to develop a framework for transformation of identity-based conflicts. Prerequisite: a 200-level course in peace studies or permission of the instructor. Variable semesters. Atashi.
