GS212- The Practices of Development (.5)
This course surveys the practice of development in a number of countries and around the world. While the focus will be primarily on Latin America, Asia and/or Africa, parallels and connections will also be drawn with the North, including Canada. Students will be asked to evaluate critically what has been attempted in the name of “development”. Specific examples may range fro the colonial era to the present, so as to demonstrate how development and related practices have changed over time.
