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.

SOCI 215 - SOCIOLOGY OF RACE RELATIONS
This course studies inter-group relations. We will look at the increasing diversity of U.S. society which has resulted from major historical and contemporary processes (i.e., colonization, slavery, and immigration). The question of who has fared better in the U.S., and why some groups are more successful than others, have been central concerns in the sociology of race relations. Does social class of origin among immigrants help or hinder their adjustment to a new society? Does religion make a difference today? Is color important? Many think it matters the most. Finally, the course will examine how we, as a society, have historically constructed "the other", to justify economic and other kinds of exploitation. Our theoretical framework will include the study of structural and attitudinal factors which contribute to discrimination, prejudice, and general intolerance.

SOCI 240 - THE BLACK FAMILY
The Black family, like all families, faces a crisis as we approach the 21st century. Not only are we faced with a growing number of unemployed family members, but we are also witnessing an ever increasing number of single never-married households. Less than half of all Black children are raised in two-parent families. Many of these children are poor because their mothers are poor. Middle class Black families are confronted with run away inflation. Many of them are finding it difficult to maintain middle class status on the salary of two working partners. The survival of Black people depends on the strength of their families. This course will discuss the African and Southern roots of the Black family. It will look at the Black family from an historical perspective in order to understand the contemporary issues confronting its existence.

SOCI 250 - INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION & HUMAN RIGHTS
Every year between 2.5 and 4 million people cross international borders without authorization. Escaping war and civil conflict, political instability, ethnic violence, environmental disasters, and poverty, they search for a new home, and a chance to work with a livable pay. They are caught between borders in a borderless world. International Migration and Human Rights is a course about their lives, the causes of their displacements, and their treatment by others. International Migration and Human Rights shifts the focus of the study of the national interest of receiving and sending states to the human rights of the migrants. It helps the students to go beyond the popular nationalist narrative advocated by the media and politicians, to conduct a critical analysis of leading migration issues of our time. Evaluating the effects of globalization on migration, the increase in the number of people in need of protection, and the border policies of the United States and other affluent nations, the course calls for a reevaluation and reform of the existing international refugee and migration regimes.

An analysis of the position of women in developing societies, using a sociological perspective, complemented by historical, economic, political, and cultural approaches, the course will explore how strategies for international development have shaped women's lives. We will examine the assumptions behind common development indicators believed to reflect women's realities. For example, do higher levels of national economic growth mean that the living conditions for most women and their families in developing countries automatically improve? Does participation in the work force give women greater autonomy in the family? Special attention will be given to the cultural basis of women's roles in Third World societies as well as among women of Third World populations in the United States.
