This course will explore ideas of nation-building in, as well as the transnational relations between Europe and Africa: nation, state, and nation-state, and their relationship to nationalism as a political theory/ideology. In our discussions, we will investigate ideas of the nation state along the lines of race, class, and gender, while taking into account the roles that politics, economics, history, literature, and modern media play within the formation of nation states. Furthermore, we will scrutinize how contemporary ideas of the European Union, the African Union, and of a Global Union are discursively constructed and possibly conflict with conventional perceptions of nation states. Finally, we will contemplate how globalization challenges nation states.
