90:485 Sociology of Development and Globalization [Robles]

Prerequisite: 90:154 or permission of Instructor.

This course will examine the theoretical and historical underpinnings of “Development” as both a national and international project of economic development in the post-1945 era. To better conceptualize the stakes of contemporary debates over globalization, the course will situate the current understanding of globalization in the sociological study of development and underdevelopment.

Selected case studies from Asia, Africa, and Latin America will be analyzed.
