The Practices of Development
0.5 Credit

This course surveys the practice of development in a number of countries around the world. While the focus will primarily be 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 from the colonial era to the present, so as to demonstrate how development and related practices have changed over time.
