Course Description:

This course examines the tension between liberty and equality, which are fundamental concepts to all democratic regimes. We will begin by exploring theoretical perspectives presented by 20th-century political theorists and use their ideas to frame a discussion using assigned case studies. While this is a political science course, its focus will also be writing and revising academic papers. Each class will cover different processes of reading, thinking, analyzing and writing.
