Immigrants, Citizenship and Nationalism in Greece

                     Conducted in English

Immigration, Citizenship, and Nationalism have become central to social relations and political competition in contemporary societies.  In this course we will explore immigration and patterns of immigrant incorporation in Greece.  Since the early 1980s immigration has transformed Greece, and other Southern European countries, into a multi-racial and multi-ethnic societies. The purpose of this course is to train undergraduates who are interested in European studies, Sociology, Psychology, Law, Pre-Med, Journalism, and Literature, in approaches to research, and in the sources and uses of research materials on Europe.   

Immigration, citizenship, and multiculturalism will be examined at the level of the European Union and at the nation state level for Greece, as a typical southern European country.  Topics to be explored include: the development of citizenship law in Greece and Europe; nationalism in the context of European integration; the politics of xenophobia and xenophilia; international law, social and psychological problems due to immigration, and immigrants as political actors.  Analysis will focus on the role of divergent national traditions, rooted in the development of nationalisms and colonial histories, and the convergent pressures resulting from European integration.  Class lectures will be divided between the discussion of assigned readings intended to introduce interesting methodological and substantive examples of research on a series of subjects within the literature on immigrants.
