Senior Colloquium: Political Economy
CSS 391
Fall 2020
Section: 01  

This course studies political economy from the vantage point of a broader distinction between the public and private spheres of social life: We consider what that distinction might mean and how it matters, how the two spheres are manifested and interrelate in actual societies, and how the appropriate or "optimal" boundary between the two spheres might be determined. There are a number of lines of social inquiry out there that touch on this distinction. Perhaps none of them fits exactly with our purposes in this course, but the analytical framework of game theory will serve, in a broad way, as the foundation for our inquiries.
