Nature/scope of modern world system (capitalism), its impact on regional development processes. Roles of state and of international financial institutions. prereq: Sr or grad or instr consent
Class Description:
Globalization and Development is a senior/graduate course in Geography and development studies. The principal objective of the course is to train students in development theory and practice in context global transformations. What do we mean by development at the beginning of the new millennium? Are the fortunes of Third World countries improving more significantly in this more globalized world than say, fifty years ago? How are the world resources distributed, and are Third World countries gaining enhanced capacity to "catch up?" At the end of the semester, I expect students to have a strong grasp of development theory and substance. There are two parts to the course. Part one deals with the intellectual history of development theory: from colonization to globalization and what Third World societies need to do to exploit opportunities in the system and minimize ill-effects. We look at a number of country case studies to better understand the specific challenges different societies face. Format of class: lecture/seminar. Requirements: one research paper, one book review and bi-weekly reaction abstracts to key class reading, and thoughtful class participation. Textbooks: a packet of reading and several short texts.
