You will find your homework listed here. It will include readings for the course as well as particular writing assignments.

 Hello students, for first class, please read the following:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation - "Nation" defined.

http://geography.about.com/cs/politicalgeog/a/statenation.htm   More terminology defined "Nation"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationalism  "Nationalism"

http://iwp.uiowa.edu/news/event-docs/2008/Skaragas_Ioannis_ICPL.pdf  "Ethnic Nationalismin the Balkans"

Questions to Consider for Discussion

1. What is the most general definition for a "nation?"

2. Do "nations" have boundaries in your opinion? Are they supposed to have them?

3. What are the different types of nationalism?

4. How can one use nationalism for differing purposes? Explain a negative and positive nationalist project or projects.

5. Is there anything positive about nationalism? Discuss.

NB: The above are questions to get you to start thinking in preparation for class discussions. This is the way I want you to approach every reading, by asking yourselves questions such as these according to theme and then answering them thoroughly with specific insights in regards to each.
