Anthropology and Development


In this course, we will examine the crucial role of anthropology in interdisciplinary projects that deal with economic development and planned change, both nationally and internationally. We will focus on how anthropology can shape sustainable, culturally sensitive, and socially just development initiatives. We will use various case studies to explore issues such as natural resource exploitation and development, disaster recovery, migration, household livelihood security, microcredit, global land governance, and participatory development. The course is designed to provide students with the theoretical foundations and critical perspectives that are necessary to analyze the impact of development initiatives on diverse societies and cultures. This course will require extensive reading, discussion, and writing with revision, fulfilling the writing-intensive (WI) requirements for undergraduates and capstone requirements for some majors.
