VT Government & Politics

Vermont Government and Politics
Vermont is the second smallest state in America. Its state government is similarly small and accessible. How does it work? Does it work well? Are there lessons for other states that haven't fared as well during the recent economic downturn? Are there lessons Vermont can learn from other states? This course will offer an insider's perspective on the political landscape and governmental system of our host state. We will learn about the state's political history, meet with those involved in the process, and discuss the intricacies of state government and how the political system affects it.

Diplomacy, War, Social Change

From One World War to Another: Diplomacy, War, and Social Change, 1918-1948
Traumatic events create great changes. No event in the 20th century was more traumatic than World War II. In this course we will consider the diplomacy that led to the war, determined the conduct of the war, and shaped post-war politics. We will examine what it was like to be engaged in the war on the battlefield and on the home front. Then we will consider the war's effects on future wars, on international law, and on society, including gender and racial relations. We will employ a variety of sources: readings in history and politics, memoirs, poetry, feature films, and documentary videos. (Political Science)

Writing Tunisian Constitution
Please register via INTD 1153A

Writing the Tunisian Constitution: Process and Problematics
In this course students will investigate the process of drafting Tunisia’s new constitution from the ground up. Using transcripts of constitutional committee meetings and materials drawn from traditional media sources and social media, students will examine how the final draft language emerged from consensus-based decisions on three social and political topics: the distribution of political power, the role of religion in the state, and the equality of citizens’ rights. Students will investigate which topics have been left out of the constitution, and why. Alongside an intimate look at the partisan and personal factors that influenced debate on these topics in Tunisia, students will engage in comparative analysis of the Tunisian constitution of other recently composed constitutions. This course counts as elective credit towards the Political Science major.
