ANTHR 7437 - [Anthropology of Development]

Fall. 4 credits.

Next offered 2015-2016. Co-meets with ANTHR 4437 .

M. Welker.

This course provides an anthropological perspective on international development. After reading orthodox theories of development and considering them in historical context, we will examine ethnographic accounts of postcolonial development that draw on political economy and poststructuralist traditions. The final portion of the course looks critically at the emergence of discourses such as participation, empowerment, social capital, civil society, and sustainability in mainstream development.
