ANT 4260 - Anthropology of Development (3)

When Offered: Spring. Alternate years
This course offers an anthropological perspective on the critical study of national and international development projects. The anthropology of development puts questions of culture and human experience at the center of analysis. Through anthropological studies of the everyday life of development, we consider the lived consequences of development for those “being developed,” as well as for those advocating development. This ethnographic approach highlights the intimacies and materialities of development experiences. Geographic/cultural areas of emphasis will be global in scope but with extra emphasis in the instructor’s area of expertise.
Students who have previously taken ANT 4261  may not enroll in or receive credit for ANT 4260.
