Nov. 30, 2009 Study questions on Verdery and Eriksen 143-178 (Identity politics, culture and rights; The non-ethnic) 1. On p. 293 Verdery speaks about the three ways “democratization” is transnational. Discuss. 2. “One might even say that ethnonational identities were perhaps the principal form of ‘collective consciousness’ that socialism produced” (p. 294).

Provide 2 examples from her discussion. 4.
