General course Description:
Nearly every aspect of American law, and much of transnational law, is affected by two important features of the modern world: the fact that the world is organized politically into legally sovereign nation-states, and the concept of citizenship that nation-states routinely use to define membership, rights, and responsibilities within national communities. This course considers three interrelated topics involving citizenship and as well as nation-states at a time when both are subject to a continuing process of evolution: (1) How does American law address the concept and meaning of citizenship in a changing world? (2) How have nation-states evolved over the last few centuries, and what (if anything) about this process is particularly relevant to or distinctive in the United States? And (3) what economic, political, and demographic pressures could affect the future of citizenship and the nation-state?
