SOCI 208 - DEVELOPMENT ISSUES IN SOUTH INDIA: STUDY ABROAD
(Study Abroad course) The idea of "development" has had a major influence on the formation of economic and political institutions in modern India. This course will trace the social career of this important idea in the west, in India and the third world. Beginning with independent India, how "development" was institutionalized through centralized planning apparatuses, such as large scale programs to increase agrarian and industrial production, will be studied. The course also surveys later phases of Indian development, from the "mixed economy" approach to the recent "liberalization" and integration of the economy into the global economy. The course concludes with an analysis of the rise of the non-governmental sector in India and their critiques of the dominant paradigms of development.
