1 COLGATE UNIVERSITY POSC 153A: INTRODUCTION TO COMPARATIVE POLITICS (Spring 2017) Professor: Juan Fernando Ibarra Del Cueto Persson Hall Office hours: Monday and Wednesday 1:30-3:00 p.m. Overview This course offers an introduction to the main theoretical and methodological issues in the comparative study of politics. Its goal is to provide students with the basic tools to understand the nature of the research questions that comparativists ask, the theories that they produce to answer them, and the empirical evidence that they garner to substantiate their theoretical claims. The course is organized around five macro-components (States and Nations; Political Regimes; Institutions; Contentious Politics; and Political Economy), which in turn are subdivided into narrower topics. By the end of the course, students should be able to understand the basic contours of varied political phenomena and their determinants, including, among others: state capacity, nationalism, political violence, democratization, parties, forms of government, and development. The historical and empirical material covered in the course draws from different regions of the world including Africa, South and North America, East and Southeast Asia, and Western Europe. Course Requirements Students are expected to complete all readings for the session prior to each class and to actively participate in the discussion of the material assigned. There will be two in-class exams and students will have to write two short papers throughout the semester (approx words each). Papers should answer one of the questions that will be distributed at the end of each macro-component. This means that students will have five opportunities to turn in their two papers. However, all students MUST turn in a paper for one of the first two macro-components (States and Nations and Political Regimes). Performance in the course will be evaluated as follows: In-class exams: 25% each, 50% total. 1

2 Papers*: 20% each, 40% total. In-class participation: 10% *Late Policy: Barring an extraordinary excuse, all late papers will be marked down a third of a grade (example: A to A-) for every 24 hours that it is handed in after the due date. Some of you may find that writing can sometimes be hard. Fortunately, the University counts with an excellent resource that may be of help: the Writing and Speaking Center in 208 Lathrop Hall offers assistance with essays for any course. Experienced writing consultants can help native and non-native speakers alike with a written paper s focus, development, organization, clarity, citations, or grammar. Details about all meetings remain private. To make an appointment, go to: or call (315) Use of electronic devices: Please note that computers, cell phones, and all other technological devices must be turned off during class out of respect for the instructor and fellow students. This is an interactive course that demands your attention and participation. Readings Please plan to order the following textbook: Norton and Company. All other readings will be available on Moodle. 2
