Course Description: This is the first part of a year-long seminar in theories and methods of political science, specifically designed for students in the Global Leadership Fellows Program. Part I is a reading seminar, which introduces students to some of the major concepts and theories in contemporary political science. The themes of the seminar have been selected not only for their academic importance, but also for their relevance to understanding American politics, and Japanese politics. The reading assignments combine classic/ representative literature with more recent research, and include several useful empirical applications in the US and Japan contexts. Thus, this part of the seminar aims to provide solid foundation and intellectual inspiration for students who are interested in pursuing their own original research in political science. It will be followed by Part II (in the Spring semester), which will focus more on research methods and guide students in developing feasible research proposals for the senior thesis.
