Discerning the ethnic and racial dimensions of politics is considered by some indispensable to understanding contemporary world politics. This course seeks to answer fundamental questions about racial and ethnic politics. To begin, what are the bases of ethnic and racial identities? What accounts for political mobilization based upon such identities? What are the political claims and goals of such mobilization and is conflict between groups and/or with government forces inevitable? How do ethnic
21L.448J Darwin and Design (MIT)
This subject offers a broad survey of texts (both literary and philosophical) drawn from the Western tradition and selected to trace the immediate intellectual antecedents and some of the implications of the ideas animating Darwin's revolutionary On the Origin of Species. Darwin's text, of course, is about the mechanism that drives the evolution of life on this planet, but the fundamental ideas of the text have implications that range well beyond the scope of natural history, and the assumptions

This course focuses on evolution of contemporary politics and economics. The subject is divided into four parts: Context: historical and strategic perspectives, theoretical issues, and sources and forms of conflict; Continuity: detailed analysis conflicts systems and their persistence, as well as regional competition and recent wars – focusing on specific countries and cases; Complexity: highlighting situation specific strategic gains and losses; and Convergence: focusing future co
21H.931 Seminar in Historical Methods (MIT)
This subject is designed to give 21H majors and minors an introduction to the methods that historians use to interpret the past. We will focus on two areas: archives and interpretation. In our work on archives, we will ask what constitutes an archive. We will visit one or two local archives, speak with archivists, and assemble our own archive related to life at MIT in 2003. Once we have a better understanding of the possibilities and limitations of historical archives, we will turn to the task o
21H.225J Gender and the Law in U.S. History (MIT)

21H.466 Imperial and Revolutionary Russia: Culture and Politics (MIT)
At the beginning of the eighteenth century Russia began to come into its own as a major European power. Members of the Russian intellectual classes increasingly compared themselves and their autocratic order to states and societies in the West. This comparison generated both a new sense of national consciousness and intense criticism of the existing order in Russia. In this course we will examine different perspectives on Russian history and literature in order to try to understand the Russian E
Interdisciplinary Science Earth Through Time Student Document
The Earth Through Time module examines our planet in terms of its major systems; the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere and the biosphere, all of which are constantly interacting. The module explores the topic of climate change throughout Earth’s history; climate change is not just a contemporary phenomenon, it has happened in the geological past at times abruptly and catastrophically.
AlgTop11: Rational curvature, winding and turning
This video introduces an important re-scaling of curvature, using the natural geometric unit rather than radians or degrees. We call this the turn-angle, or tangle, and use it to describe polygons, convex and otherwise. We also introduce winding numbers and the turning number of a planar curve. This is the 11th lecture in this beginner's course on Algebraic Topology, given by Assoc Prof N J WIldberger at UNSW.
Philip Cowley, Reader in the University’s School of Politics and International Relations, was recently nominated for the Times Higher young researcher of the year award. In this podcast, Philip discusses his research into back bench rebellions within the British parliament. Philip describes his research as practical politics, linking academic research to the real world of political debate. Since the British Labour party’s re-election with a reduced majority of 66 MPs in May 2005, some back b
