Ethnicity As a Political Resource : Conceptualizations Across Disciplines, Regions, and Periods - image 1 of 1

About this item

Ethnicity as a political resource is a seminal subject in numerous disciplines, such as social and cultural anthropology, history, political science, sociology, psychology, cognitive science, and biology. Studies on ethnic formation, indigeneity, autochthony, nationalism, social movements, and transnational mobility often approach these topics from a particular viewpoint. While most researchers agree on the significance of research on ethnic identities and their use as socio-political resources, the various disciplinary approaches to conceptualizations and understanding these phenomena have not yet been discussed within an interdisciplinary framework. This book looks at ethnicity as a political resource in different academic disciplines, different regions of the world, and across different historical periods. Seventeen essays are divided into three parts: ethnicity as a political resource in different academic disciplines; ethnicity as a political resource in different regions of the world; ethnicity as a political resource across different historical periods.
