EDS 206- Economic Anthropology and Development

The course focuses on development-related themes from a global perspective: development is not simply a 'Third World' concern, and covers three central areas: i) critiques of development policy and practice; ii) impacts of social, economic and political transformation; iii) the contributions and roles of anthropology. Specific subjects for study include: theoretical bases of development policy; gender and non-capitalist models of development; development policy and practice; privatization; technology and indigenous technical knowledge; land use; environment and ecology; the implications of politicized anthropology and advocacy; discourses of participation and empowerment. The course also focuses on child welfare issues and services of relevance to development policy.
