SOCI 301 - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA:STUDY ABROAD
(Formerly SOCI 208) The idea of "development" has had a major influence on the formation of economic, social and political institutions, spanning from the post-Independence period to modern-day India. Broadly, the story can be told on three interwoven themes -- hyper-modernization, appropriate technology and sustainable development. This course will trace the trajectory of these three themes: in the West, in India and in the Third World, as undergirded by Gandhian calls to self-sufficiency and sustainable development. Beginning with post-interdependence India, "development" was institutionalized through centralized planning apparatuses, such as large scale modernization programs to increase agrarian and industrial production. In later phases of Indian development, these ideas moved from the "mixed economy" approach to the recent "liberalization" and integration of the economy into the global economy. The course concludes with an analyzis of the rise of the non-governmental sector in India, with their calls for a more appropriate approach to technology and sustainable development.
