Citizenship is one of the few devices for countering the centrifugal forces of pluralism. Can it succeed in the face of competing demands on our loyalty and competing sources of identity? This course explores the concept of citizenship, traces its historical evolution, and discusses the special challenges of citizenship in the face of multiculturalism, ethnicity, race, gender, religion, and globalization. Professor Feldman lectures from Burlington, Vermont using videoconferencing technology. This approach allows for a real-time interactive discussion between the instructor and the students.
