DVST6901 - Development: Critical Perspectives A

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Neil MacLean

Description

In the post World War 2 era 'development' has seen a philosophical and policy shift from nation building projects of 'modernisation' to an emphasis on the local responsiveness of market forces and civil grounded projects of capacity building. This unit critically reviews this transition from the perspectives of an anthropological emphasis on the relationship between political economy and cultural difference and the sociology of multiple modernities. Specific questions of health, poverty, gender and resource development structure this critique.
