This course will be framed around a central question: what makes Afghanistan a state? In trying to answer the question, students will encounter politics, geography, ethnicity, and history as apertures to understanding the relentless violence that has defined the country since its inception. Students will be expected to generously participate as we discuss what constitutes Afghanistan. Arriving at a comprehension of Afghanistan through many disciplines provides the objective of the course. Understanding the land, its people, and their way of life by looking through a variety of lenses will allow student to sample different studies.
