Course description: POL-UA9994 Identities in American Politics in the 21st Century

This course focuses on how identity—in all its forms—is seeing a resurgence in contemporary American politics and public policy. We will examine how changing demographics are affecting the parties' electoral strategies, their platforms, and the policies enacted once in office, and we will explore literatures on inter-group relations, prejudice and discrimination. We will endeavor to understand the increasing influence of some identity groups (such as LGBTs, gun owners, Latinos, and Mormons) on politics, and the declining impact of other groups (such as labor unions). We will be particularly attuned to the question of whether identity is eclipsing other concerns (such as preferences for policy) in Americans' party identification, voting behavior, and their general understanding of the political landscape. We will consider how new technologies--including social media, data-driven campaigns, and an increasingly heterogeneous political news environment--are affecting and sustaining these dynamics.
