SummaryWhat do people do when they are doing politics? What does politics consist of? What is political work and how is it done? This course seeks to explore the microsociology of the political process, drawing on a range of perspectives from different disciplines.

The course is organized in three sections, with varying emphases on actors, actions and artefacts. A first section focuses on what we might take core activities of engagement or activism, representation and administration in turn. It establishes a sense of politics as people doing things, as something carried on between men and women with first and last names. It takes the boundaries of politics to be those not of the territory, but of the room and the street; it begins to study politics from the inside out.

The second section is based on the recognition that political life is essentially word-based, and turns on talk in meetings and on the production and circulation of documents and texts. A third section, in turn, explores its irreducible materiality, investigating the way politics is embedded in artefacts and instuments, machines and technologies, buildings, spaces and human bodies.

A skills strand is woven across these substantive elements, introducing students to the basic research methods of documentary analysis, interview and observation and requiring them to craft case studies their own.

In these ways, the course aims to capture politics in some of its essential social forms. It makes no a priori distinction between the local, the national and the international, or between the disciplines that might be used to understand them. Its intellectual roots are diverse: they include discourse theory and practice theory as well as a range of other approaches across the social sciences.

Learning and Teaching activities (Further Info) Total Hours: 200 ( Lecture Hours 30, Programme Level Learning and Teaching Hours 4, Directed Learning and Independent Learning Hours 166 )
Assessment (Further Info) Written Exam 0 %, Coursework 100 %, Practical Exam 0 %
Additional Information (Assessment) The course will be assessed by a 4000 word course paper. This will comprise a case study of some element or aspect of 'political work', and will be derived from empirical investigation by documentary, interview or observational methods. It will provide relevant background and context, draw on secondary literature as appropriate, and offer critical reflection, analysis and discussion. A typical case study might be based on an interview with a practitioner, observation of a meeting or event or the analysis of documents and material artefacts.

Students will be required to present outline proposals for case studies in class. These presentations will function as formative assessment, and will receive oral feedback but will not be awarded a mark. This constitutes a fotmative feedback event.
