GLS 4200 - Global Development and Difference (3)

When Offered: On Demand
This course examines and critiques global patterns of power, privilege, and difference as they arise through globalization and development. These patterns will be analyzed through terms such as inclusion, essentialism, empowerment, participation, instrumentalism, equity, and justice. Course topics will address issues of difference such as gender, queerness, age, disability, class, caste, race, and indigeneity. Students will work collectively to understand multiple differences and asymmetries of power, and the possibilities for transformation, in both local and global contexts.
