GPS 6115 - Contesting Development

Cross-Listed As: GPS 4115

This research seminar will examine the contemporary context of uncertainty that has arisen from environmental, economic and political crises largely fueled by a hypermodern vision of development. Dwindling social gains have caused many to question the promise of development and the certitude of modernity. Through the lens of various social struggles in distinct but related spaces of the global political economy, we will explore both the limiting assumptions of development discourse and practice and the possibilities of alternative visions of progress. Students will choose a particular national, international, or transnational social struggle engaged in both the contestation and rethinking of traditional visions of development to further explore and investigate.
