International and Area Studies (IAS) offers an interdisciplinary major that allows undergraduate students to develop a broad understanding of the world, while exploring the diversity and richness of other cultures. One of the hallmarks of the contemporary era is the complex relationship between globalization and local differences. New information technologies and worldwide markets connect people, ideas and products throughout the globe. Yet even in this context of globalization, strong attachments to local languages, cultures and societies remain. In some ways, differences among people — whether of government, economy, religion or ethnicity — are becoming more pronounced.

How can we understand these tensions between the global and the local? International and Area Studies courses explore this question in a combination of ways that makes it unique among undergraduate majors at Washington University. IAS is committed to an interdisciplinary perspective that spans the humanities and social sciences and encourages both a contemporary and a historical point of view. It introduces IAS majors to comparative local, international and global perspectives on important issues in the 21st century. 

IAS challenges students to master a foreign language as well as the cultural contexts in which the language is spoken, but it also requires study of more than one world area. In addition to conventional course work, IAS encourages exploration of contemporary foreign affairs through speakers, conferences and faculty panels; and provides an introduction to international careers. The program provides robust support for foreign study and independent research, and IAS majors frequently take advantage of one of Washington University's overseas programs during the junior year or the summer.

There are five concentrations available to IAS majors: (1) IAS with a concentration in development; (2) IAS with a concentration in Eurasian studies; (3) IAS with a concentration in European studies; (4) IAS with a concentration in global cultural studies; and (5) IAS with a concentration in international affairs.

The Major in International and Area Studies

There are five concentrations available to IAS majors: (1) development; (2) Eurasian studies; (3) European studies; (4) global cultural studies; and (5) international affairs.

Please visit the following pages for more information about their requirements:

Please visit the separate European studies page for information on this concentration.

Total units required: 36 graded credits plus four semesters of any modern foreign language.

Required courses:

  • These depend on the concentration.

Elective courses:

  • Depending on the concentration, two to four lower-level courses (3 credits each, typically at the 100 or 200 level, may be at the 300 or 400 level).
  • Depending on the concentration, eight to ten upper-level courses (3 credits each, at the 300 or 400 level).

Regulations:

  • Completion of all IAS course work with a grade of C+ or higher; all courses for the major must be taken for a letter grade.
  • Students must satisfy the standard IAS foreign language requirement with a language appropriate to their concentration and consistent with their study abroad location (more details below).
  • Students must complete one semester of language before declaring the major.
  • We strongly encourage students to study abroad. For those who do not study abroad, an additional 3 credits at the 300 or 400 level are required (more details below).
  • We strongly prefer students to select a study abroad location consistent with their chosen language of study (e.g., students who wish to study in Latin America must satisfy their language requirement with either Spanish or Portuguese).
  • Throughout the course of completing the IAS major, students must show depth in at least one world area by taking a minimum of two courses focused on the same area, and breadth by taking a third course focused on a different area. We consider world areas to be Africa, East Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America (for some concentrations) and South Asia.
  • Students must choose their upper-level course work from a minimum of three academic disciplines (for example, anthropology, art history, economics, film, history, literature, music, philosophy and political science).
  • No more than 12 total credits earned outside of the day school of Washington University may be applied to a student's IAS major. This limit includes credits from study abroad (never more than 6 credits from a single semester, 3 from a summer, or 12 from a year), University College, or summer school from other U.S. universities, or any combination thereof. (400-level credits must be earned on campus or in Washington University courses taught abroad.)
  • No more than 3 credits may be from directed readings, research or independent study excluding the honors thesis.
  • The advanced credits must be unique to the IAS major.
  • At least 6 credits must be at the 400 level.

Additional Information

Language Requirement: All IAS majors must satisfy a foreign language requirement which entails the successful completion of four semesters of a language appropriate to their concentration while at Washington University. For some students, this may mean the first four semesters of a language; for others who place into advanced language classes, and with approval from IAS language faculty, this may include literature, culture, oral communication and linguistic courses in the target language, once they complete the basic language sequence. Advanced courses in literature, social sciences and culture used to satisfy this requirement may be counted as advanced credit for IAS majors as long as they are cross-listed with IAS or approved for IAS study abroad credit and are not applied toward a language major or minor. A maximum of two of these classes may be completed while abroad on a Washington University approved program in the target language (may be within the same semester abroad). Native speakers of a foreign language must satisfy the four-semester requirement in another language appropriate to their concentration. Heritage speakers must seek appropriate placement by the coordinator of the language program and complete the four-semester requirement.

Study Abroad: Majors are strongly encouraged to study abroad in one of Washington University's overseas programs during junior year or the summer. Some credit for courses taken abroad may be applied to the major. For those who do not study abroad, an additional 3-credit course at the 300 or 400 level is required.

Senior Honors: Students must confidently expect to graduate with an overall GPA of 3.65 or higher in order to qualify for Senior Honors. Students should enroll in IAS 485 Preparation for IAS Honors Thesis in the fall of senior year, and in IAS 486 IAS Senior Honors Thesis in the spring of senior year (under the corresponding section number of the faculty member overseeing their thesis) in order to be properly tracked by the IAS capstone coordinator.

The International and Area Studies program does not offer a minor.

L97 IAS 103B International Public Affairs

We live in a complex, fast-paced world. Technological advances and economic interdependence bring us closer together, even as globalization creates new challenges that cannot be solved by one country alone. In this class we examine the forces that affect competition and cooperation in a globalized world. Students engage with influential social science literature on these topics, participate in classroom discussion, and take part in classroom activities, such as debates and policy-making simulations, to build a deeper understanding of these theories. In addition, students work on semester-long policy projects to build practical skills in problem solving, team building, and communication. This course is restricted to freshmen in the Global Citizenship program.

L97 IAS 107 A World on the Move: Post-Conflict Migrations

Migration is the human face to our modern era of globalization, entailing incredible costs, risks and returns for migrants along with important consequences for host societies, sending societies and the wider world. This course offers a new perspective on how and why people move by examining general theories and practices of migration and then analyzing various geographic locations, policies and individual experiences through the detailed study of two cases of global movement that occurred after the end of World War II and again after September 11, 2001. While close attention is paid to Europe, as both host and home to many migrants during these two key moments, we also spend time visiting North Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, Latin America and the United States to follow the paths of important migrant groups during these eras. We contextualize the historical factors that led to these migrations, the social and economic consequences of these large movements of people, but spend the bulk of our time looking at the multiple perspectives of peoples involved from migrants themselves (both forced and voluntary), refugees and displaced people, soldiers, government officials from both host and home societies, representatives from the host society and more.

L97 IAS 125 Migration and the Migrant Experience

Regular migrations of people across international borders continue to perplex governments, policy expert  and human rights advocates. This course uses the lived experiences of the millions of people who have moved and currently move between Mexico and the United States each year to think about migration's meanings in local, multinational and global contexts. What does the relocation of individuals, families and communities tell us about boundaries, nation states and globalization? What does it mean to be a transnational citizen? What is the relevance — and responsibility — of nation states in the new "global" world?

L97 IAS 127 Migration in the Global World: Stories

The expression "Stories of Migration" has a variety of meanings. A "story" is a narrative that has a beginning, middle and an end; an account of imaginary or real people and events told for entertainment, a report of an item of news in a newspaper, magazine or broadcast; or an account of past events in someone's life or in the development of something. This course is restricted to and required of participants in the International Leadership Program. A story also can be a way to make sense of the world, and, as we discuss throughout the semester, a tool to change the world. This course is based on the premise that in order to shape the future of migration in the global context, it is imperative to understand how stories of migration emerge, are told, passed on, shared, translated, disseminated, collected, challenged and retold. For these purposes we examine a wide range of stories of migration from the past decade. We experiment with both low-tech and high-tech media in order to come up with different ways to showcase stories of migration, and to assess the actual repercussions that these stories of migration have. While we address migration in the global context, we focus on three regions: the U.S. Mexican border, the Mediterranean and St. Louis. We study immigrant communities in these different locations and analyze a variety of narrative forms and structures in order to discern the impact that stories of migration have both locally and globally. Course materials include novels, memoirs, journalism, essays, short stories, graphic novels, radio programs, film and performance pieces. This course is restricted to freshmen in the International Leadership program.

L97 IAS 129 Perspectives on Migration: History, Memory and the Making of Modern Europe

Politicians in several European countries recently declared that "multiculturalism has failed," emphasizing immigration as the cause of contemporary social and political conflict and denying the historical role of migration on the European continent. However, from Teutonic and Slavic settlement migration in the first 10 centuries AD to recent guest worker programs and immigration from former colonies, encounters between different cultures, religions, and forms of social organization have been a staple of European societies' development and contributed to producing the continent's geopolitical map as we know it today. In this course we trace significant mass movements of people in Europe and the historical and political repercussions of these migrations to try to understand why some migrations are remembered and others are not. We also study how notions of "otherness" and "diversity" have come to be central points of contention within current discourses in Europe. Primary sources, autobiographical narratives, scholarly analyses and a range of visual material including maps are the basis for class lectures and individual and group work assignments in this course. This course is restricted to and required of participants in the International Leadership program.

L97 IAS 135 Freshman Seminar — Chinatown: Migration, Identity and Space

"Chinatown," as a cultural symbol and a spatial entity, links various topics and studies in this course. Our survey starts with a historical and geographical glimpse of five Chinatowns in the U.S. through the real life stories of their residents. This is followed by an in-depth study of Chinese restaurants and food all over the world using texts, images and films that reveal how Chinese cuisine is inherited in and adapted to each local culture and society. The seminar culminates in a discussion of Chinese migration and settlement, the representations of identity, and the cultural and spatial constructions in particular historical and social contexts. The assignments include field trips to Chinese businesses, and a debate on whether or not Olive Boulevard constitutes a Chinatown in St. Louis.

L97 IAS 140 East Asia in the World

This course covers the geopolitical history of 20th-century East Asia, from its colonial constellation through its transformation into Cold War nation-states. We then use an interdisciplinary approach to investigate contemporary problems accompanying the emergence of regional economies and institutions. We grapple with the question of when people in East Asia — China, Taiwan, the Koreas and Japan — act as members of a transnational region and when they act in ideological, national or local terms. We evaluate different disciplinary approaches in order to understand the combination of knowledge and skills necessary for drawing meaningful research conclusions. In reading articles produced by a range of scholars and institutions, the course is also an introduction to the politics of the production of knowledge about East Asia. We then apply our knowledge to a real-world conflict and give team presentations on our proposed solutions. This course is restricted to freshmen in the Global Citizenship program.

L97 IAS 155 Freshman Seminar: Mapping the World: Introduction to Human Geography

What is human geography and why is it important? This course addresses these questions by introducing students to the fundamentals of the discipline of human geography. A geographic perspective emphasizes the spatial aspects of a variety of human and natural phenomena. This course first provides a broad understanding of the major concepts of human geography, including place, space, scale and landscape. It then utilizes these concepts to explore the distribution, diffusion and interaction of social and cultural processes across local, regional, national and global scales. Topics include language, religion, migration, population, natural resources, economic development, agriculture, and urbanization. In addition to providing a general understanding of geographic concepts, this course seeks to engender a greater appreciation of the importance of geographic perspectives in an increasingly interconnected and globalized world.

Globalization, the accelerating rate of interaction between people of different countries, creates a qualitative shift in the relationship between nations, communities and economies. Conflict and war is one form of international interaction. Movement of capital, goods, services, production, information, disease, environmental degradation and people across national boundaries are other forms of international interactions. This course introduces major approaches, questions and controversies in the study of global political-economic relations. In a small group seminar we examine the building blocks of world politics, the sources of international conflict and cooperation, and the globalization of material and social relations. This course is restricted to freshmen in the Global Citizenship program.

L97 IAS 229 Modern European History: Migrations, Nation States, Identities

Politicians in several European countries recently declared the failure of multiculturalism, emphasizing immigration as the cause of social and political conflict. These statements deny that the European continent as a whole has been shaped by various forms of migration, ranging from Teutonic and Slavic settlement migration in the first 10 centuries AD, and rural-to-urban migration and religious expulsions in the Middle Ages, to recent guest worker programs and immigration from former colonies. Encounters between different cultures, religions and forms of social organization are a staple of European societies' development. The course begins with a brief overview of significant population movements since the Early Modern Era and then focuses on important mass movements since the French Revolution. Course units study the nexus between migration and modernization, people's movement and the nation-state, empire and citizenship, and economic and social development. The class also poses the questions: Why are some migrations remembered and others not? Why do we know what we know about migration and migrant experiences? How do notions of "otherness" and "diversity" come to be central points of contention within current discourses in Europe? How do race, class and gender interact in shaping the experience and perception of immigrants? Primary sources, autobiographical narratives, scholarly analyses and a range of visual material including films and maps are the basis for class lectures and individual and group work assignments, helping students to develop critical thinking and effective oral and written communication skills.

After the study of these traditions, the final portion of the semester considers contemporary Europe since 1991, considering such subjects as Green politics, internal migration and immigration, and the culture of the European Union.

L97 IAS 260 Migrations in Past and Present: Introduction to Migration Studies

The course, grounded in a multidisciplinary approach, provides an introduction to the study of migration, featuring significant mass movements in the past 150 years and crucial concepts of historical and theoretical analyses of the movement of people. Course units explore continuities, trends and shifts in human migration and migration policy and how they affect individual immigrants' lives. A variety of sources, such as oral history, films, novels, legal documents and scholarly secondary analysis help students to consider different perspectives on internal and international migrations, from the individual migrant to civil society, from political regulation to economic consideration. Throughout the course, students deepen their understanding of migration as a result of social transformation, force or individual choice. We study concepts of the nation-state and citizenship, the political economy of migration, gender, sexuality and migration, and notions of identity and social inclusion more generally to build a sound critique of contemporary discourses on immigration.

L97 IAS 270 Sophomore Seminar: Globalization and Its Discontents

Today, the heady promises of globalization appear to have failed us. The notion of global markets and global citizens seems to have remained at best, an ideal. Meanwhile the world's majority has witnessed a staggering decline in education, nutrition, health and even physical mobility. Nowhere have these developments passed unquestioned: from the rise of the so-called Maoist insurgency in India to the Occupy movement in the U.S., people and especially the youth have expressed their outrage in creative and unconventional ways. In this course we plot the long and necessarily violent history of forging global interconnections. We next focus on the past 40 years to theorize the new social formations spawned by specific aspects of contemporary globalization such as the internet and the English language. Finally we look to the environmental and social abuses committed in the name of global connectivity and the massive protests against those atrocities. The lens for our analysis is India, South Asia and their relationship with the United States. We approach a range of novels, films and popular cultural artifacts as we build our own understanding of the nature, critique and promise of globalization. This is a sophomore-only seminar.

Movement of capital, goods, services, production, information, disease, environmental degradation and people across national boundaries are other forms of international interactions. This course introduces major approaches, questions and controversies in the study of global political-economic relations. In a small group seminar we examine the building blocks of world politics, the sources of international conflict and cooperation, and the globalization of material and social relations.

"Intercultural communication" and "cross-cultural communication" are interchangeable terms in referring to the field of studies covered in this course. This course is designed to further students' sensibility toward cultural variables and to cultivate their practical skills in managing cultural diversity in everyday life and business. Our interrogation focuses on how cultural variables affect the thought, behavior, and value systems, the transmission and interpretation of messages, and characteristics of interpersonal and cross-cultural communication. We learn key concepts in this field (verbal and nonverbal communication, individualism and collectivism, stereotypes and ethnocentrism, etc.) and issues of particular concern in the current world (gender, race, inter-ethnic/racial relations, and intercultural communication in classrooms, medical care, and international business, etc.).

L97 IAS 3266 "East" and "West" in Jewish Imagination and Politics

How have Jews, as a paradigmatic diasporic people, understood their place between "East" and "West," and their relationships with other Jews and non-Jews within, across, and beyond the vast territorial expanse of Eurasia? What has it meant to identify, to be identified, and to live as Jews in Eurasia and beyond — both before and after the State of Israel? We begin with the origin of world Jewry, follow the various and interrelated experiences of Jews under Christendom and Islam, and, through carefully chosen vignettes, trace how the modern concepts of "East" and "West" have shaped the course of Jewish history, politics and imagination for millennia.

L97 IAS 328B Gateway to Development

Why do some nations develop while others languish? What accounts for disparities in wealth and opportunity in the world? These are far more than simply economic questions because development creates economic, political, and social surpluses, skills and capabilities that can be allocated to other tasks. Societies that attain development become more capable actors in world affairs and are better able to address problems confronting their domestic societies. This seminar explores what governments and societies do to promote or hinder growth and development, and how those actions influence social arenas.

L97 IAS 343 Text, Memory and Identity

This course explores issues of collective memory and identity through the study of texts such as national myths and official histories taught in schools. The focus is on texts themselves and how they are produced (e.g., by the state, popular culture) and consumed. The course has two components, methodological and analytical. In the first, we read a number of theoretical works devoted to definitions of the text from a historical and structural point of view. In the second, we analyze various key works that have played a crucial role in the formation of communities of memory and identity and the borders that separate them. The course is comparative, multidisciplinary and international in its scope.

L97 IAS 3512 "Model Minority": The Asian-American Experience

As an introductory course to Asian-American Studies, this course explores key issues in the field revolving around the concept of "model minority." It explores the origins of this concept, analyzes the social discourses about Asian Americans as a model minority, and through interrogations of complex experiences and heterogeneity among Asian Americans (including Pacific Islanders), it aims to dismantle the model minority myth. This course is designed to respond to the students' interest in Asian-American Studies as well as to fit into the broader discussion on campus about race and ethnicity in the United States. It approaches race and ethnicity by focusing on one designated pan-ethnic group, and uses multidisciplinary inquiries inspired by the fields of history, sociology, anthropology, law and education, all of which are concerned with the conceptual framework of "model minority."

L97 IAS 356 Andean History: Culture and Politics

Since pre-Columbian times, the central Andean mountain system, combining highlands, coastal and jungle areas, has been the locus of multiethnic polities. Within this highly variegated geographical and cultural-historical space, emerged the Inca Empire, the viceroyalty of Peru — Spain's core South American colony —  and the central Andean republics of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Taking a chronological and thematic approach, this course examines pre-Columbian Andean societies, Inca rule, Andean transformations under Spanish colonialism, post-independence nation-state formation, state-Indian relations, reform and revolutionary movements, and neoliberal policies and the rise of new social movements and ethnic politics. This course focuses primarily on the development of popular and elite political cultures, and the nature and complexity of local, regional and national power relations.

L97 IAS 357 The Holocaust in the Sephardic World

The course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the Holocaust, of its impact on the Sephardic world, of present-day debates on the "globalization" of the Holocaust, and of the ways in which these debates influence contemporary conflicts between Jews, Arabs and Christians in Southern Europe and North Africa. We turn to the history of these conflicts and study the Sephardic diaspora by focusing on the consequences that the 1492 expulsion had within the Iberian Peninsula, in Europe and in the Mediterranean world. We study Sephardic communities in Europe and North Africa and their interactions with Christians and Muslims before World War II. Once we have examined the history of the Holocaust and its impact on the Sephardic world in a more general sense, our readings focus on the different effects of the Holocaust's "long reach" into Southeastern Europe, the Balkans and North Africa, paying close attention to interactions among Jews, local communities and the Nazi invaders. Finally, we address the memory of the Sephardic experience of the Holocaust and the role of Holocaust commemoration in different parts of the world. We approach these topics through historiographies, memoirs, novels, poetry and film.

L97 IAS 3575 U.S. Foreign Policy: Theory and Practice

In this class we focus on the procedures and institutions that shape U.S. foreign policy decisions. This is neither a course on international relations theory nor a history of U.S. foreign policy. Rather, this course examines the domestic politics surrounding U.S. foreign policy decisions. How do public opinion, electoral politics, and interest groups shape foreign policy? Which branch controls foreign policy — the president, Congress, the courts? Or is it ultimately the foreign affairs bureaucracy that pulls the strings? We examine these topics through reading and writing assignments, class discussion, and simulations to promote deeper understanding and build practical skills.

Borders are some of the most strange, dangerous, and changeable places in the world. They help define not only where we are but also who we are. This course reads literature from and about border regions around the world: the Mexican-American frontera, the Indian and Pakistani Partition line, the German Iron Curtain, the African colonial borders, and the Israeli-Palestinian divisions. Even if we live far from any international boundary, the notion of the border shapes our thinking about the world. Literature is a place where borders are vividly imagined, marked and debated in ways that both affect preexisting frontiers and help draw new ones on the ground. We read all texts in English.

L97 IAS 363 Russian Literature and Opera: Transpositions and Transgressions

This interdisciplinary course surveys the intersections between Russian literature and opera from the 19th century to the present. Literary works in a variety of genres (short stories, narrative poems, plays and novels) by Russian authors (with Pushkin as a clear favorite) have inspired generations of leading Russian composers, resulting in significant operatic adaptations, including Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, based on Pushkin, Prokofiev’s The Gambler, based on Dostoevsky, and Shostakovich’s The Nose, based on Gogol. For each pairing of author and composer, we read and discuss the literary text before considering the ways in which the original was refined, trimmed and generally transformed for the operatic stage. We frequently view opera productions and consider issues of staging, embodiment and fidelity to the original. The broader goal of the class is to consider the possibilities and limits of artistic media, specifically the points of agreement or dissonance between literature and music.

L97 IAS 364 Anarchism: History, Theory and Praxis

This course analyzes the origins, historical trajectories and influence of anarchism from its classical period (1860s-1930s) until the present. It examines the major personalities, complex ideas, vexing controversies and diverse movements associated with anarcho-collectivism, anarcho-communism, individualist anarchism, anarcho-syndicalism, anarchist feminism, green anarchism, lifestyle anarchism and poststructuralist anarchism. In doing so, it explores traditional anarchist concerns with state power, authority, social inequality, capitalism, nationalism, imperialism and militarism. It also analyzes anarchism's conception of individual and collective liberation, mutual aid, workers' organization, internationalism, direct democracy, education, women's emancipation, sexual freedom and social ecology. Special attention is given to past and contemporary globalizing processes and their relation to the dissemination and reception of anarchism in the global South.

L97 IAS 374 Russian Literature and Empire

In this course we explore Russian literary works (from the 19th century to the present day) that address issues of empire. We consider the building of the Russian empire during tsarist times with the conquest of Siberia, Ukraine, the Crimea, the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Far East; then we look at the remaking of the Russian empire as the Soviet Union under the "anti-imperialist" communist regime; we conclude with a glance at the legacy of empire in contemporary Russia, with a focus on the Chechen Wars. Some of the topics we discuss include the poetics of space, orientalism, authority and rebellion, imperial bureaucracy, religious identities, migration and deportation, and multiculturalism. We do close readings of works by Pushkin, Lermontov, Gogol, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Babel, Platonov, Iskander, Aitmatov, Petrushevskaya and others. Primary readings are supplemented with critical articles and several films. All readings are in English translation. No prerequisites.

Where is the borderline between "insanity" and the "visionary" experience? What is the correlation between madness and creativity? How does the Russian conception of madness compare to the Western one? In general, how do our cultural experiences shape our perception of madness? These are some of the questions we address in this course as we explore the role and representation of madness in Russian culture and literature. Class discussions focus on close readings of formative works by Pushkin, Gogol, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Gippius and Nijinsky. These primary literary texts are supplemented by critical and theoretical articles as well as film. This is a writing-intensive course: workshops are required. All readings are in English translation. No prerequisites.

This course focuses on several waves of Russian emigration in the 20th century: the so-called "White Russian" emigration in the wake of the 1917 Revolution; the exile of dissidents and defectors from behind the "Iron Curtain"; Jewish emigration in the 1980s; and migrations and displacements after the disintegration of the Soviet Union. Through our exploration of novels, short stories, poetry, memoirs, literary essays and film, we "travel" to China (Harbin), Turkey, Europe (Paris, Berlin, Prague), America (Mexico City, New York), Central Asia and Israel. We read works by Nabokov, Tsvetaeva, Bunin, Brodsky, Ulitskaya and others. Main topics discussed include memory, place, nostalgia, alienation, citizenship, and various constructs of personal and cultural identity. All assignments are in English and English translation. There are no prerequisites.

L97 IAS 384 Migration and Modernity: Human Mobility, Identity and State Formation — Russian/Soviet/post-Soviet Context

This class introduces students to a broad history of 19th- and 20th-century Russia and the Soviet Union alongside problems of migration. In this class, students are introduced to the historical, social and political dimensions of migration within, to and from the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and its successor states. We look at the intersection of the movement of people with long-term economic, social and political transformations, but also pay attention to crucial events and phenomena of Soviet history that set large-scale migrations in motion. Course materials, for instance, address mass movements related to modernization and internal colonization, analyze the role of revolutionary change and warfare for forced displacement, and study the implications of geopolitical changes in the aftermath of the breakdown of the USSR for human rights discourses. Alongside the historically grounded overview, the class explores concepts of citizenship, diaspora, nationality policy, gender specific experiences of migration, and the ethics and political economy of migration politics, thereby highlighting how current trends in Russian society are indicative of broader discourses on difference and social transformation.

L97 IAS 386 Empire in East Asia: Theory and History (WI)

An introduction to how historians and anthropologists incorporate theoretical insights into their work, this course first "reverse engineers" the main arguments in several insightful books and articles on empire in Asia, all of which are informed by the work of Michel Foucault. Retaining our theoretical knowledge, we then focus on the more empirical aspects of the Japanese empire in Korea, including settler colonialism, the colonial economy, representations of colonialism and the long-term ramifications of empire. We conclude with a general assessment of the history of empire. In these ways, this course seeks to equip students with a knowledge of empire in East Asia in the late 19th and 20th centuries while simultaneously investigating the nature of that knowledge.

L97 IAS 390 Topics in Migration and Identity

The course examines migration movements that are related to the Nazi genocide in Europe. Grounded in a study of the Nazi project to reshape the European geopolitical map, students explore how the mass movement of people is impacted by geopolitics, political violence, and economical considerations. Class materials address the relationship between identity formation and social exclusion, thus opening up a critical investigation of concepts of citizenship, human rights, and their institutional frameworks (states, international organizations, etc.) more generally. Students work with a variety of sources, including primary sources, scholarly analyses, podcasts, literary works and film to study migrations related to the prehistory, policies and aftermath of the Nazi regime. The class provides insights into issues of expulsion, refuge, forced migration, settlement projects, ethnic cleansing and others, but also demonstrates the global impact and long-term repercussions of political and genocidal violence. Looking at the Nazi regime through the lens of migration shows that the Nazi genocide is embedded in a history of racism, colonialization and mass violence.

L97 IAS 396 Comintern: The Communist International's Global Impact

The Communist International was the third of the global left-wing organizations aimed to develop communist organizations around the globe to aid the development of a proletarian revolution. Begun in 1919, hosted in Moscow, and closely tied to the developing USSR, the Comintern hosted seven World Congresses and thirteen Enlarged Plenums before Stalin dissolved it in 1943. This course examines the history of the nearly 25 years of the Comintern, paying particular attention to engagement with countries outside of the Soviet sphere. Class texts provide a general historical overview and interrogate central ideological arguments/debates across several countries and political systems. Course materials look at the Comintern's engagement with Fascism and the Spanish Civil War, ideas of Nationalism and Internationalism, and Self-Determination in the Colonial World. Class units are designed to highlight regional similarities and differences, taking a global approach to the study of Communism. Students gain an understanding of the global political complexities developing after World War I and leading to World War II. Reflecting on the critique of imperialist capitalism offered by the Comintern, students explore liberation struggles and ideological dictatorships around the globe.

L97 IAS 402 The Meaning of National Security in the 21st Century

The 21st century has brought with it new challenges to national security. Standard assumptions about nations and the borders that separate them have been brought into question, and one of the results of this is that the very meaning of national security is undergoing change. Instead of threats to security coming from outside national boundaries, they now often exist within and across borders. This course focuses on contemporary ideas about these issues. It includes a brief overview of current discussions of national security, but it is primarily devoted to examining the conceptual resources we have for making sense of national security in a new world.

We aim to scrutinize the studies of the "1.5" generation and the second generation, and theories such as "segmented assimilation," across a wide range of ethnic groups, from people of East Asian origins to those with Latin American ancestries, by mainly focusing on their experiences in the United States.

L97 IAS 4062 The Art of Borrowing: The "West" in Japanese Life

This course aims to examine Western influences in Japan and Japan's reconceptualizing the "West" in various aspects of popular culture, including cuisine, sports, music, language, advertising, entertainment and domesticity. It is primarily an anthropological survey with historical references on Japan's turn to Western civilization in the modern era. The course explores Japanese perceptions of the "West," and how Japanese consume the "West" by attaching meanings to "Western" symbols and practices, and making them part of Japanese culture and life. Rather than explicating Japan's relationship with the West, the course scrutinizes the "West" constructed within Japanese discourse, as both a racial/ethnic other and a cultural fantasy. Course assignments include a round-table discussion on specific topics relating to cultural integration and internationalization, and globalization and localization.

L97 IAS 420 Islam, Immigrants and the Future of European Culture

Coming from Turkey, North and West Africa, Pakistan and elsewhere, Muslim immigrants in Europe are changing what it means to be a European. In the process, they have brought questions of cultural identity into the international media. Examining literature, the press, and secondary studies, this writing-intensive course studies the ways in which national governments and institutions have chosen to deal with the arrival of large numbers of Muslims as permanent residents. We consider what the various controversies and prejudices surrounding their presence mean for the future of European culture. Such issues as citizenship, assimilation, the right to cultural difference, and the use of cultural and religious symbols are among our major interests. No foreign language background is assumed. Priority is given to IAS majors for this WI course.

L97 IAS 4201 International Relations of Latin America

This course examines Latin American foreign relations in the world from the 1820s to the present with a primary emphasis on the period since 1945. Focusing on inter-state and transnational relations, it seeks to historically contextualize and analyze long term patterns and trends between Latin American states and between Latin America and the United States, Europe, and the global South. Given Latin America's shared experience with imperialism and more recently with neo-imperialism, special attention is paid to the ways Latin America has sought to manage and/or resist foreign domination, especially U.S. hegemonic pretensions. To this end it analyzes patterns of inter-American conflict and cooperation. When, why, and under what conditions Latin America articulated an independent foreign policy, forged anti-imperialist blocs, embraced U.S. sponsored diplomatic efforts and military alliances, and pursued Latin American unity and solidarity are closely examined. To better understand the continuities, discontinuities, contradictions and complexities of Latin American foreign policy, this course also assesses the influence of changing regional and national political cultures from both a theoretical and a historical perspective. In doing so, it explores how elite culture, the balance of domestic social forces, ideological and economic development, and shared cultural identities and meanings informed national political cultures and how these in turn shaped Latin American foreign policies.

L97 IAS 422 Europe, Questions of Identity and Unity

Nation states and their cultures have been changed by globalization. Within this process, continentalization has played an important role. The European Union is only half a century old, but continental unity has been discussed and demanded by European writers and thinkers for hundreds of years. We read essays on Europe (its identity, its cultural diversity and its cultural roots, contemporary problems and future goals) by writers such as Coleridge, Madame de Staël, Novalis, Chateaubriand, Heine, Nerval, Hugo, Thomas Mann, Ernst Jünger, T.S. Eliot, Klaus Mann, de Madariaga, Kundera, Enzensberger, Frischmuth and Drakulic; we discuss studies reinventing Europe by philosophers such as the Abbé de Saint-Pierre, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche and Ortega y Gasset; we deal with the mythological figure of Europa and her resurrections in the world of art; we study the Nazarene painters of the early 19th century in Rome and discuss portraits of Bonaparte by French painters of the time. Comparative Literature students meet with the instructor for an additional two hours per month.

L97 IAS 4224 The 1904 St. Louis World's Fair: German and Austrian Art Exhibited

The St. Louis World's Fair of 1904 (The Louisiana Purchase Exposition) was one of the greatest events of its time. At the beginning of the course, we deal with the historical development that lead to the purchase of the Louisiana Territory in 1803 and have a look at the grand dimensions of the World's Fair (connected with the Olympic Games). Of central importance are the Art Exhibits from Germany and Austria with their cultural-political implications. The German Emperor had a hand in selecting the German paintings to be sent to St. Louis, and his opposition against modern movements like Impressionism caused opposition in Germany. Austria was different: In their Art Nouveau Pavilion they included secessionists (Hagenbund). The Wiener Werkstaetten (Vienna's Workshops) attracted a lot of attention. Different from the paintings, German Arts and Crafts represented avant-garde movements. We visit libraries, archives and museums in St. Louis that have World's Fair holdings. The seminar is for advanced undergraduate students but beginning graduate students can take it with permission of the instructor.

L97 IAS 4225 European Utopian Settlements in the American Midwest (1814-1864): Diversity and Antislavery

During the first part of the 19th century, a number of utopian visionaries from Europe (Germany, France and England) tried to establish communities in the American Midwest. These colonies were based either on religious or philosophical/social ideals which could be traced back to interpretations of the Old and the New Testament or to Enlightenment principles of freedom and equality that had been propagated during the revolutions in Europe of 1789, 1830 and 1848 which in turn had been influenced by the American war of independence. These groups showed strong antislavery convictions. The Midwest was chosen since the areas in the vicinity of the confluence of the Mississippi and the Missouri were seen as open to new social experiments. Part of the seminar are field trips to the St. Louis-based Missouri History Library as well as to the St. Louis Public Library and one-day excursions to New Harmony in Indiana, Nauvoo in Illinois, and to small towns in Warren County, Missouri.

L97 IAS 4246 State Failure, State Success and Development

Why do some nations develop while others languish? This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to examining the role governments play in development and economic outcomes. Knee-jerk ideologues from all parts of the political spectrum make competing arguments, most of which are overly simplistic and ignore good social science. Some argue that state involvement in the economy hinders economic activity and development, while others argue for greater state involvement. Such arguments are often poorly informed by systematic rigorous research. We look at some of the competing arguments about governments in failed and successful states and compare those arguments to the empirical world or data. In so doing we recognize that how governments affect development and economic outcomes in society is neither straightforward nor consistent with any of the simplistic ideological screeds that often dominate public discourse.

This course examines how immigration is being transformed by changes in information and communication technology. With these new technologies, immigrants can stay in contact with family and friends much more easily, travel to and maintain relationships in their home countries, and form bonds with other immigrants in the new country. How do these changes affect how immigrants view themselves in their new countries? Are they more or less likely to settle permanently? Do they change their patterns of political participation? We answer these and other questions using literature from sociology, communication, psychology, anthropology and political science. Students are expected to explore internet sources as well as traditional materials.

L97 IAS 4611 Latin American Populism and Neo-Populism

A salient feature of Latin America in the 20th and early 21st centuries has been the recurrence of populism. Mass-based political and social movements animated by nationalist and reformist impulses dominated Latin American politics in the 1920s, 1930s-'60s, and 1980s to the present. This course provides a general historical and theoretically informed analysis of the origins, internal dynamics and outcomes of classical populist and neopopulist governments and parties. Among the notable populist and neopopulist cases examined include: Peronism in Argentina, Velasquismo in Ecuador, Cardenismo in Mexico, APRA in Peru, Varguismo in Brazil, Garcia/Fujimori in Peru, Menen/Kirchners in Argentina, and Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. Issues pertaining to leader-follower relations, populist discourses, citizenship rights, populist gender and racial policies, labor and social reforms, and mass mobilization politics also are explored.

Focusing on the period from mid-19th century (industrial revolution) until the present neoliberal capitalist era, this course analyzes working class formation, organization, collective action, and politics on a worldwide scale. It seeks to explore the connections between historical and contemporary workers' movements in the global North and global South, eschewing national perspectives and global/local dichotomies. Special attention is given to Latin American workers and labor movements. In particular, it examines the influence of immigration, the role of export workers, the impact of radical ideologies, the development of labor relations systems, the nature of informal work, and recent struggles for workers' control. The principal aim of this course is to introduce students to the key topics and themes pertaining to global labor history. These themes are varied and complex and range from workers' struggles.

L97 IAS 4633 20th-Century Latin American Revolutions

Latin America was arguably one of the most "revolutionary" regions of the world in the 20th century. It registered four "great revolutions": Mexico 1910, Bolivia 1952, Cuba 1959, and Nicaragua 1979. These social revolutions entailed a substantial, violent, and voluntarist struggle for political power and the overthrow of the established political, economic, social and cultural orders. In the wake of these successful revolutions, new revolutionary institutions of governance were founded, radical structural changes were implemented, and a new revolutionary ethos was adopted. With the exception perhaps of the Bolivian Revolution, these revolutions had a profound impact on Latin American and world politics. The primary aim of this course is to analyze and compare the causes, processes and outcomes of the Mexican, Cuban and Nicaraguan revolutions.

L97 IAS 4660 Geographies of Development in Latin America: Critical Perspectives and Contemporary Challenges

This course provides an overview to the geographies of development throughout Latin America. We begin by examining a variety of theoretical perspectives, definitions and critiques of "development." We highlight the uneven processes of development at multiple, overlapping scales and the power imbalances inherent in much of development discourse. In the second half of the course we focus our considerations toward specific contemporary trends and development issues, utilizing case studies drawn primarily from Latin America. These themes include sustainability, NGOs, social movements, social capital, security and conflict, identity, ethnicity and gender issues, participatory development, and micro-credit and conditional cash transfers. Students acquire the critical theoretical tools to develop their own perspectives on how development geographies play out in Latin America.

L97 IAS 4662 Central American Geographies of Violence

This course provides an in-depth examination of the geographies of violence in Central America. As a region frequently characterized as endemically prone to violence, it is vital to analyze and contextualize the violence. Approaching violence in Central America from a geographic perspective involves not only locating and "placing" the violence, but also thinking relationally about the multiple, overlapping scales of activity, both within and beyond the region. The course is divided into five parts. In the first two sections of the course, we begin with an overview of the physical and human geography of the region and outline key historic moments and their legacies, including colonization, international relations (with an emphasis on U.S. interventions), civil war, genocide and torture. Simultaneously, we delve into various theoretical approaches for understanding the nature of multiple types of violence. In the third section of the course, we focus on neoliberal violence, insecurity and development and address issues such as urbanization, violent crime, issues with free trade and labor, and environmental issues. For the final two sections, we draw from contemporary case studies in the region. We will address identity and violence (discussing indigenous issues, racism, genocide and gender) and in the last section we will cover migration, gangs, drug-trafficking, U.S. security responses and re-militarization. While we will continue to consider these types of violence through the various theoretical frameworks introduced in the first part of the course, we will also examine and analyze reports on contemporary violence and policy recommendations from multiple sources (multilateral organizations, governments, think tanks, and other nongovernmental organizations). Throughout the course we will also discuss current events occurring in Central America and how they directly or indirectly relate to the topic of geographies of violence.

L97 IAS 477 Cultures of Memory in Post-War Germany and Japan

Post-war German and Japanese societies have long grappled with the issue of how to confront and commemorate World War II. This interdisciplinary course, team-taught by specialists in these fields, explores key aspects of postwar culture under four central rubrics: defeat, guilt, memory and renewal. We examine constructions of memory in a diverse range of texts, including historical, literary and cinematic narratives. Several key questions guide our discussions. What is the relationship between perpetration and suffering? How do different cultures represent and repress wartime experience and how do these articulations and omissions shape memory? How are memories of war participation and trauma shared and transmitted across generations? What do we remember and why?

L97 IAS 4869 Reading War and Peace

What is it like to enter into a fictional world for a semester? In this course we read Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace in its entirety. Set during the Napoleonic wars (1805-1812), War and Peace takes the reader on a panoramic journey from the battlefield to the hay field, from the war room to the ballroom. It is a vivid portrayal of 19th-century Russian society as well as a penetrating examination of the causes and consequences of violence and the nature of love and family dynamics. In our discussions, we explore philosophies of history, issues of social injustice and gender inequality, the psychology of human suffering and joy, questions of literary form and genre, and the very experience of reading a long work of fiction. We begin with a selection of Tolstoy's early works that laid the foundation for War and Peace and conclude with a few of Tolstoy's late works that had an enormous influence on, among others, Mahatma Gandhi. Primary texts are supplemented with literary theory and film. All readings are in English.
