Politics, Literature, and Film (Section 30)

The study of literature and film offers political scientists a particularly stimulating mode of inquiry into political institutions and principles, and into the ways of life that sustain them and are, in turn, shaped by them. Indeed, the creation of this division is itself a sign of the complex and changing landscape of the study of politics. The Section explores the way in which literature--broadly understood to include film and other literary genres--provides unique insights into the nature of political life and the study of politics.
